Petition the US Senate to allow a vote on gun control

From the Daily Kos:

Please join with Daily Kos, as well as Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly's organization Americans for Responsible Solutions, in demanding an up-or-down vote on gun safety legislation with universal background checks. Click here to sign the petition.

Gun safety votes are expected to start in the Senate as early as next week, but some senators have other ideas.

At the latest count, fifteen senators, including Republican minority leader Mitch McConnell, have vowed to filibuster any new gun safety legislation.

After Newtown, after Tucson, after Aurora, after so many other places—the victims and their families and their communities deserve an up-or-down vote on gun safety legislation, not another filibuster.

Please, click here to join with Daily Kos and Americans for Responsible Solutions by signing our petition telling the Senate to allow an up-or-down vote on universal background checks.
