Rally against Gun Violence at Capitol, Thursday at 7:30

Dear ,

Join NOW at Rally against Gun Violence

What: Democrats holding ‘Lighting the Way’ 
National Speak Out: The Path Forward on Gun Violence

Who: Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn (D-SC), Representative John Lewis (D-GA), Congressional Black Caucus, and Members of the House Democratic Caucus

Why:
The House will be adjourning for a VERY long recess, and this rally is to point out that they have failed to act on bills to promote gun safety. If miracles happen, this will be a celebration.

  • Ensuring Universal Background Checks H.R. 1217, Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act
  • Enacting No Fly, No Buy H.R. 1076, Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act
  • Closing the Charleston Loophole H.R. 3051, Background Check Completion Act
  • Barring Firearm Sales to Hate Crime Offenders H.R. 4603, Hate Crimes Prevention Act

When: Thursday, July 14th at 7:30 PM

Where: West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol Building

Here is a link to a powerful video with a pitch to come to the rally led by Congressman John Lewis. Please feel free to share on social media throughout the week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8mfOT7evM4&feature=youtu.be.

Come to the west side of the capitol and fill the mall with our bodies, signs and voices. RSVP for the rally here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1704838966445954/

If you can’t make this rally, please find your Members of Congress when they come home from the break and ask them to support real gun safety measures before more people die. The killer in Dallas had been “less than honorably” discharged from the military and he should have failed a background check.
