Regulate Guns Now!

Yesterday, there was yet another mass shooting. This time it was the outdoor dining area at a YouTube office. Next time it could be your office, or your children's school. Let your State and Federal Representatives know that this issue is not going away on its own, and neither are we. Insist that they introduce and pass gun regulations in their next session.

Action:  Call federal and state lawmakers in support of comprehensive gun regulations

Sen. Patty Murray: DC 202-224-2621; Seattle 206-553-5545
Sen. Maria Cantwell: DC 202-224-3441; Seattle 206-220-6400

Sample Script

“Hello! My name is [NAME] and I’m calling from [ZIP]. Yesterday there was yet another mass shooting, this time at the YouTube office. Enough is enough. It's time to enact  concrete, achievable gun regulations, including: 

  • A ban on assault-style weapons.
  • Raising the legal age of gun ownership to 21.
  • Comprehensive background checks.
  • [for federal only] A ban on bump stocks or any devices that modify semi-automatic weapons.

Does  [NAME] support these gun safety measures to protect our children and our workplaces? Will [NAME] commit to introducing this legislation in the next session?”
