Sign your name: I support legislation to reduce gun violence in Tennessee

Tennessee is 9th in the nation for gun deaths.

We are 9th in the nation for accidental shootings.

We are 12th in the nation for suicide by firearm.

Gun deaths have surpassed motor vehicle deaths.

Enough is enough.

We need common sense legislation to reduce gun violence.

We need background checks for every sale.

We need no fly, no buy.

We will do whatever it takes to end gun violence in Tennessee.

    I’m signing because it is ludicrous that we live in a place where insane criminals can legally buy firearms. The NRA has their hands deep in the pockets of politicians in order to prevent common sense legislation about background checks. However, almost 90% of US citizens support these laws about universal background checks. Furthermore, over 75% NRA members support this. We just recently experienced the deadliest mass shooting in our nation’s history. It’s time to stop having moments of silence and ignoring the will of the American people. I ask everyone who sees this to sign it and our lawmakers to pass common sense laws.

    Jenny Freedle, The killings must end. What on earth will it take? There was a post on FB the other day that was attributed to actor Betty White.: “My thoughts and prayers are with you Congress. My thought is to ban the sale of weapons of war. My prayer is that you will not be reelected!” These are not the exact words but close enough.

    We are not fighting the Revolutionary War any more and don’t need to protect ourselves against the British – if you don’t have a gun, you can’t kill anyone else or yourself. My best friend killed himself because he had a gun handy.
