This is a copy of the letter I sent to Senators Murray, Cantwell, Cruz and McConnell, and Representative Herrera-Beutler. Please feel free to use it as a base for your own letter. I wrote to the Senators from Texas and Kentucky because they seem to be the main people against gun reform.
Please note that Senators Cruz and McConnell have not listed Gun Control as one of the subjects that you can email about, although Senator Cruz is concerned about Animal Welfare.
“My plea is for you to help pass gun control reform. The bill is sitting on the Senate floor in Washington DC waiting for passage. Please put innocent children’s lives first before your career. Show the American people you care more about them than winning the support of the NRA. Please show the courage to limit guns, and to stop the gun violence that has become an everyday occurrence in our country. Please be a part of this solution. You take an oath to protect your constituents… Please live up to your oath…
The following is a list of issues that need to be addressed
Protection orders, keep guns from domestic violence perpetrators
Ban under 21s from purchasing firearms
Safe storage, include trigger locks and ammunition stored separately
Straw purchases, purchasing a gun for someone else
End immunity for gun manufacturers
Ban bump stocks, ban these guns that mimic automatic weapon fire
Ghost guns, guns that are privately assembled and untraceable, can be 3D printed, no serial number”
