From the Executive Director

Hello and welcome to our May Newsletter:

It is hard to ignore the rising levels of gun violence around our country, especially when young people are being killed or injured just for knocking on the wrong door or heading up the wrong driveway or asking a neighbor not to shoot their assault rifle in the yard. Together, we all must push back against the wrongheaded idea that having more guns makes a safer society.

Turning to the states, The Campaign continues ask our members and others to oppose bills that would force guns on college campuses in these states:

1) Arizona Gov. Hobbs has already vetoed two bills that would have endangered K-12 schools. We believe in the next few days the Senate will pass guns on campus legislation, as a result, we are asking you to contact Governor Hobbs requesting a veto. See action below.

2) New York (Senate bill only) Guns on campus is being considered. See the action center below for details and to voice your opposition.

3) Iowa (Senate bill only). Guns on campus is being considered. See the action center below for details and to voice your opposition.

Meanwhile, the Florida House just passed legislation turning back a key component of the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS Public Safety Act, which raised the age to purchase long guns from 18 to 21. The House continues to carry the water of the gun lobby and believes that 18 year olds (like the MSD shooter) should be able to purchase long guns. The bill is now in the Senate with only days left in the session. The Campaign worked with other colleagues, in the wake of that year’s horrible school shooting in Parkland to help pass the 2018 legislation. Please take action below to stop its reversal.

At the US Capitol, The Campaign and other groups continue to call on Congress to pass the Federal Assault Weapons Ban and our members have heeded the call. If you have not yet done so, please take action below in the Federal section. If you have already taken action, we thank you and ask that you share this link with others.

On May 24th, we will mark the 1-year remembrance for the 21 victims of the Uvalde, TX school shooting at Robb Elementary School. Look for our posts later this month and please take action supporting federal legislation to ban military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.

Communications – in addition to participating in our low-volume eblasts, you can also connect with us on social media.  Clicks this links to follow us:  Facebook, Instagram and Twitter – and please share our content through your own channels.

Finally, a shout out to the Class of 2023 and your families.  Congratulations and best of luck moving forward.

Thanks for all you do,

Andy Pelosi, Executive Director/Co-Founder
