Dear Kevin, 

On Christmas Eve, yet another town in America fell victim to gun violence. An ex-convict, armed with a semi-automatic assault rifle, set fire to his house in Webster, New York and then killed two of the firefighters who showed up to protect him — one of whom was just 19 years old

How many more needless gun deaths must Americans watch before our elected leaders take action? 

Aurora. Sandy Hook. And now Webster. After every massacre, Americans ask the same question — what laws can we pass to protect our families? And every time, the answer’s the same: nothing. Time after time, the discussion gets derailed by needless partisan bickering. 

It’s high time that we as Americans declared “Enough is enough.” There is no reason for any member of Congress to maintain that military-grade weaponry should be available on the market, no matter which party they belong to. 

Tell Congress to prioritize our country’s safety ahead of political games, before more innocent people die.
