from Gabby Giffords & Mark Kelly: Tell Congress - Revisit gun violence legislation


As members of the Navy family, we continue to hold the victims of Monday's mass shooting at the Navy Yard in our thoughts and prayers. 

We've been there, and know that nothing will bring solace to the families who lost loved ones that day.

It is our hope that as the hours and days pass, Americans and the elected officials who represent them match their anger and sadness with a renewed commitment to ensuring tragedies like this one never happen again.

That's why we wrote a letter to Congress asking them to come together in the wake of this latest tragedy, and to revisit legislation like expanded background checks that will keep our communities safer. Add your name to our letter today.

Responsible gun owners should feel outraged when criminals and the dangerously mentally ill can get their hands on guns and use them to harm children and families.

While Congress may be divided on how to stop this problem, Americans simply are not.

It's time for them to act.

All the best,
