Five years ago, 20 children and 6 educators lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Help us to honor their lives with action to avoid tragedies like this in the future. Please call your Senator and urge them to co-sponsor S. 2009 - a bill to expand background checks to all gun sales.
Here is what we need you to do:
- Fill out the form on this page.
- Answer the call that you receive. You will be connected to your Senator.
- Finally, just choose the sample script below that works best for you.
Sample Script: "Hi, my name is (NAME) and I would like to ask you to cosponsor S. 2009, which will expand Brady background checks to nearly all gun sales. This bill will make our country significantly safer, and on the anniversary of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, action is required. Please cosponsor this bill today. Thank you."
If you live in CA, CT, DE, DC, IL, MA, MD, NJ, NM, NY, OR, RI, or VT, your Senators/Delegate already cosponsor this bill. Please THANK your Senator/Delegate Norton for being a leader on gun violence prevention. A suggested script for you is: "My name is (NAME) and I live in your state. THANK YOU for being a leader on gun violence prevention and being a co-sponsor of S. 2009. Gun violence prevention is very important to me, and I am very happy that you have taken this step. Thank you."
If you live in Washington, DC, you can thank your Congresswoman, Eleanor Holmes-Norton, for co-sponsoring HR 4240, the House bill that expands background checks to all gun sales.
