Stand With President Obama: I Will Not Vote For Any Candidate Who Does Not Support Commonsense Gun Reform

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

I pledge that "I will not campaign for, vote for, or support any candidate who does not support common-sense gun reform."
There are currently 37,703 signatures. NEW goal - We need 40,000 signatures!

Petition Background

President Obama announced a number of executive actions this week designed to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. While these are important measures much more needs to be done to stem the tide of gun violence in this country. Our legislators need to do their job and pass meaningful, commonsense gun laws to protect our communities.

President Obama has pledged that "I will take every action I can as a citizen. I will not campaign for, vote for, or support any candidate, even in my own party, who does not support commonsense gun reform" and advises us that "all of us need to demand leaders brave enough to stand up to the gun lobby's lies. All of us need to stand up and protect our fellow citizens. All of us need to demand that governors, mayors and our representative in Congress do their part."

We know the only way to change the epidemic of gun violence in this country is to make this a “single issue” during the next election, so I stand with President Obama to demonstrate that "the way Washington changes is when people vote."
