It has been one year since the tragedy at Sandy Hook, and we still do not have a federal law that requires any background check before most gun purchases.
We can and must do better. On Friday, December 13, join moral activists from coast to coast and urge your Senators to pass laws to prevent gun violence.
When you call, tell your Senators:
- 11,000 more Americans have been murdered with guns since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary.
- The majority of Americans support gun violence prevention measures and wish the Senate would have passed the background check bill this year.
- Support the bipartisan Manchin-Toomey background check compromise.
Let them know that you are calling as part of Faiths Calling to Prevent Gun Violence.
"The time is always right to do what is right"
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

On December 13
ONE YEAR LATER…
We call on lawmakers and say: Enough pain. Enough despair. Enough injustice. Enough inaction. In light of the one-year anniversary of the Sandy Hook tragedy, and in memory of the thousands of Americans kill by gun violence in our country every year, we can and must transform or grief into action.
Add your voice to the chorus of others from a diverse array of religious traditions that have spoken out to end gun violence.
