Let’s put an end to mass shootings: Take Action Now!

  

Texans are sick of lawmakers taking orders from the NRA. We need common-sense gun reform now.

Sign your name and tell Texas lawmakers: we demand gun safety reform now!

I stand against gun violence and in favor of common-sense gun safety. It is unacceptable that mass shootings are happening here in Texas and across the nation on a regular basis. We need lawmakers to take action now.

We can pass common-sense gun reform. The kind Texas Democrats are proposing

Enough is enough.

Show your support and sign your name today to demand gun safety reform now!

Background

For the past nine years, Progress Texas has been at the center of the most important progressive initiatives, including gun reform. 

From January 1 to September 1 this year we have seen 335 fatalities and another 1,129 injured in 283 mass shootings. Our nation has faced more than one mass shooting per day. According to the Gun Violence Archive, a mass shooting is defined as any event in which at least four people were shot, excluding the shooter.

This epidemic is more than a set of numbers. It is families forever changed, fear spread, and the soul of a nation torn.

Texas Democrats have many proposals to fight mass shootings including:

  1. Assault weapons ban
  2. High-capacity magazine ban
  3. Funding CDC research for gun violence
  4. Universal background checks
  5. Red flag laws
  6. Reporting stolen guns
  7. Closing loopholes for background checks and gun sales
  8. Limiting open carry of certain semi-automatic long guns

You can help us defeat this epidemic.
