Universal Background Check for Gun Purchase

To be delivered to The United States Senate

Petition Statement

We, the American people, overwhelmingly support universal background checks for the purchase of guns. We are outraged that certain U.S. Senators buckled to pressure from the gun lobby and other organizations to kill legislation that has already been proposed. In light of that response, we hereby petition that new universal background check legislation be proposed and be voted on by the U.S. Senate as soon as possible.
There are currently 626 signatures. NEW goal - We need 750 signatures!

Petition Background

The U.S. Senate recently failed to pass legislation that would have closed most of the loopholes in the present background check system. It appears that many senators were pressured to vote negatively by the gun lobby and other organizations. Considering the outrage expressed by the American people, who are overwhelming in favor of this legislation, we want new universal background legislation to be considered as soon as possible.
