Mayors Against Illegal Guns: We're driving our bus to Capitol Hill
The No More Names bus tour is heading to Washington, D.C., Congress is coming back from summer recess, and we're going to make sure gun violence prevention is a top priority in this legislative session.
We're going to fly in some of the amazing people we've met at No More Names events all across the country -- including gun violence survivors, family members of victims, law enforcement officers, faith leaders, community organizers, and elected officials. They'll join us as the bus rolls up to Capitol Hill, and together we'll demand action from our members of Congress.
This is going to be an event our nation's lawmakers can't ignore. And the most important part is the voices of supporters like you from more than 20 states we've visited who will be making the trip and meeting with their elected officials.
That's why your donation is so critical. The more you give, the more supporters we can bring to DC to make sure Congress hears that an overwhelming majority of Americans demand action to reduce gun violence.

Too. Much. War.
The quotes and certain retellings of history would have me believe that we fought for pure purposes: we fought for religious freedom, we fought to end slavery, we fought for freedom for all humanity, we fought to end tyranny. But it's also true that we fought (and fight) for economic interests. It&…
