No Thoughts or Prayers…ACTION

We are all aware gun violence in Illinois has escalated at an alarming rate. Forty seven minutes ago 3 people were shot, including a pregnant woman.

We don’t need more thoughts and prayers as we wring our hands over “today’s shooting.” We need you to ACT.

A bill was filed today that will enable the state to enforce safety measures and guidelines for gun dealers that will curb the illegal flow of guns from gun dealer to criminal (HB 1016.) This bill does not restrict second amendment rights.

Please file a witness slip today in support of this bill. We need hundreds of slips filed. Share this email and “call to action” far and wide to all your networks! We can file slips until the hearing date on May 17.
