Every victory against the gun lobby matters!!!

To pass legislation in Congress, we need to convince wavering Senators that keeping guns away from criminals and the dangerously mentally ill will save lives, and that leaders who support gun responsibility win elections.

That's why every election that pits a principled pro-responsibility, pro-gun safety candidate against the gun lobby is so important -- why every victory means so much.

And we have a chance for an important win in Virginia's gubernatorial race one week from today.

We have pledged to counter the NRA's financial involvement in that race dollar-for-dollar, but we need your help to make it happen.

Contribute today and help us score a critical victory for common sense solutions to reduce gun violence.

Virginia Gubernatorial Debate: October 24, 2013

Moderator: "Ted in Blacksburg wants to know do you support or oppose universal background checks...?"

Terry McAuliffe: "Let me answer this first as a parent, as a spouse ... I'm a strong supporter of the 2nd amendment, I'm a gun owner and I'm a hunter. But I support universal background checks. My opponent and I differ on that."
There's a real difference between the two candidates in this race: Terry McAuliffe will work to make our communities safer -- his opponent Ken Cuccinelli has led the fight against responsible solutions to reduce gun violence.

Contribute $25 today, and let's send a powerful message that supporting background checks in a "purple" state or district is the right thing to do.

After spending five years in Congress, I know the pressures my friends on each side of the aisle face when making up their minds on important issues like this one.

Winning this race in Virginia will go a long way towards making it easier for a few more of them to take the right vote the next time background checks comes up.

All the best,

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
