Dear Congressman/woman or Dear Senator,
Gun violence is a public health issue, and it is taking an unacceptable toll on the lives and safety of our communities. Now is the time for you to create and/or support the meaningful policy changes outlined below to curtail the deadly epidemic of gun violence.
Each of the following recommended policy changes have broad public support (Gallup, Pew Research) and are supported by research into policy impacts and mass shootings (Johns Hopkins, The Violence Project).
We need to ACT NOW!
Multiple research reports show that a significant majority of Americans (across all parties and among gun owners and non-owners alike) express support for several common-sense gun safety measures. These include:

Contact your state legislators as well as your U.S. congressional representatives now.
It’s easy: simply copy and paste the letter above or take a few moments to personalize it with the policy positions you prefer. Then share it and encourage others to do the same.
