Reform Gun Laws in the USA

Target: President Obama and the Federal Government

Petition Background (Preamble):

I DON’T WANT TO TAKE YOUR GUNS!

I don’t want to ban your guns! But if this is something you claim to hold so dear, let’s make sure that it’s not as easy to get them! If you are required to take a test for your driver’s license and occasionally required to retake your vision test in order to keep it, then is requiring a gun course and an occasional mental competency test really so unreasonable?

40% of all Legal Gun Sales Require no Background Check. Really!? The few states that have tougher restrictions on guns have the lowest instances of gun related homicides. In states that prohibit gun to people that have restraining orders; saw a reduction in domestic related homicides by 19%. Compared to other high income countries, we are 22% higher in gun deaths.

We need to stop pretending that there is no connection between guns and gun violence. Please stand with me to demand a ban on assault rifle and tougher restrictions on obtaining a gun!

I DON’T WANT TO TAKE YOUR GUNS! Let’s simply take those rights that some hold so precious and make sure to keep it that way by making it more difficult for the wrong people to get them.

Petition:

DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN PARENTS JOIN TOGETHER TO DEMAND REFORM IN THE ABILITY FOR SOMEONE TO OBTAIN A GUN!
