Vote to change the Republicans blocking gun safety reform

"President Biden marked the second anniversary of the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas with a letter to the community, saying more must be done to prevent gun violence and mass shootings. Nineteen children and two teachers were killed at Robb Elementary School on May 24, 2022, in one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history. Biden wrote in the letter that while he visited the victims' families after the shooting, "they had the same message we hear in the aftermath of all too many mass shootings: Do something." - Axios

Number of people killed in school mass shootings

Republican 'Thoughts & Prayers' never saved a life

"An upward trend in the number of mass shootings has fueled a contentious debate about gun rights. And while liberals throw cash behind pro-gun control efforts through super PACs like Giffords PAC (formed by gun violence victim and former Rep. Gabby Giffords) and nonprofits like Everytown For Gun Safety, groups like the National Rifle Association are still powerful in Washington. The NRA has been a strong voice for the rights of gun owners across the country, battling attempts to enact gun control legislation at every level of government. Aside from the NRA, other major gun rights advocacy groups include the National Shooting Sports Foundation and the National Association for Gun Rights." - Open Secrets

MAGA Republicans pack courts with extremist justices who put gun rights over public safety
