When Trump says the NRA’s views will be “fully represented” in talks to #EndGunViolence, does he know they already have a president to do that? As US President, he should care more about the views of 97% of Americans who support background checks. #GiveUSAVote 1/
Senate Republicans up for reelection in states like AZ, CO, OH and ME need to stop standing with the NRA and start standing up for our kids by demanding Mitch McConnell #GiveUsAVote on background checks for gun sales. Don’t ask for our votes if you can’t do your job right now! 2/
Trump says he is “all in favor” of strong background checks for gun sales. Actions speak louder than words. He needs to get #MoscowMich McConnell to #GiveUsAVote in the Senate on measures already advanced in the House. Let’s get this done. #Enough! 3/
In February, #MadamSpeaker led House Democrats in advancing #backgroundchecks for gun purchases that 97% of Americans support and sent it to #MoscowMitch McConnell for action in the Senate. He blocked it instead. We deserve for him to #GiveUsAVote! 4/
FACTS: #Universalbackgroundchecks for guns will save lives; 97% of the public agrees. Even the NRA did too before prioritizing gunmaker profits above all else. House Democrats did their job! Mitch McConnell needs to call back the Senate NOW to #GiveUsAVote! 5/
No other developed nation has mass shootings like us. They have the same video games as Americans and their rates of mental illness are also comparable. What they don’t have – easy access to guns. Stop scapegoating and #GiveUsAVote on background checks, Mitch! 6/
Background checks once had bipartisan support in Congress. In fact, 97% of Americans support them right now! It’s time Republicans like Cory Gardner, Susan Collins, Rob Portman and Martha McSally started representing us again – instead of the NRA! Tell Mitch to #GiveUsAVote! 7/
Partnering with survivors of gun violence and other activists marching the halls of Congress and taking over town halls to demand action, Democrats fulfilled a sacred promise to act in the House. Now, Mitch McConnell needs to #GiveUsAVote in the Senate. /END
