Steve Sanetti & the NSSF: Support Comprehensive Background Checks

To be delivered to Steve Sanetti, President, National Shooting Sports Foundation and Lawrence G. Keane

Petition Statement

Mr. Sanetti and Mr. Keane,
Prove that you want the National Sports Shooting Foundation to be part of the solution to reduce gun violence in America. Prove this to your hometown of Newtown and all of America—Commit to supporting federal universal background checks now!
There are currently 5,234 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

The National Shooting Sports Foundation is located in Newtown, CT. Even after the devastating loss of innocent life right here in their own town, this organization refuses to support federal universal background checks. The NSSF is the #2 Gun Lobby in the US. The vast majority of Americans are in favor of federal legislation requiring universal background checks that would close the "gun show loophole" in every state, as well as other "private" transactions that allow people to obtain firearms without a check. The NSSF is fighting against such a change. We demand the NSSF tell Congress and Newtown that it has had a change of heart and supports universal background check legislation.
