To be delivered to: The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama
This petition aims to intercept the power of the NRA which has a grip on our congress and senate. The only way we will enact meaningful gun control legislation is if we remove the NRA from the political landscape, for BOTH parties. Think about how Grover Norquist used the "power of the pledge" to get Republicans to commit to never raising taxes--we can use this power in a positive way, to get politicians to publicly commit, by signing a Pledge, to never taking another dime of NRA political contributions. The petition itself--and your signatures--will be used to persuade representatives who currently take NRA contributions to sign a simple pledge that states they will no longer do so.
