URGENT ACTION NEEDED: Silence the Illinois Gun Lobby day TODAY!

The Illinois Gun Lobby (ISRA) is marching to the Capitol this morning to ask our lawmakers to voteNOon SB 1966, the Fix the FOID Act. SB 1966 will Block Illegal Ownership (BIO) by making sure background checks are conducted for all gun purchases, that’s why we are calling it the BIO Bill! Check a BIO, Save A Life!

Let’s silence the gun lobby lies. What’s the plan? A DIGITAL DAY OF ACTION. Here’s how you can participate:

Step 1

Text CHECKS to 77948. Text this number to be sent a direct link to call your state senator. Once connected, ask your state senator to vote YES on SB 1966 to ensure there is a background check for every gun sale in our state, and to strengthen current law so that people with violent histories are not able to purchase guns.

Step 2

With just one click you can send an email to each of the 11 key members of the Senate asking them to say “YES” to SB 1966: http://bit.ly/SHUTDOWNTHEGUNLOBBY.

Step 3

Tweet @ Your Senator. It’s important that your state lawmakers hear from you – and tweeting is a very effective way to show your support for the BIO Bill (SB 1966) to FIX THE FOID.
