Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) needs you to step up now to make your voice heard on several important issues. The list of gun massacres keeps growing. We need your help to stop the carnage from guns. Click here to tell Congress to pass common sense gun safety legislation.
Then, please help us finish the fight for Net Neutrality. The Senate voted to overturn the FCC, but now we need you to write to your Representative and demand he or she protect Internet freedom.Also, remind your Senators to stay strong in case another vote comes up. It’s important you share these action alerts with all your contacts via email and social media. We must make sure we’re heard!
Every month or so, we’re horrified by yet another preventable gun massacre. Ten people were killed and ten more were wounded in a shooting yesterday, May 18th at a high school near Houston, Texas. This latest massacre, this time at Santa Fe High School, was the worst since the Parkland, Florida slayings. Tell Congress: It has to stop!
97% of Americans support strong background checks to purchase a gun. Most of us favor banning private ownership of assault weapons and bump stocks, limiting the number of rounds in a clip, closing loopholes for gun shows, and other common sense gun laws. Tell Congress to get serious about protecting us from guns by enacting strong gun safety laws, by restoring the ability of government agencies to study gun violence, and by closing gun show loopholes.
We’re counting on you to act! Have you had enough? We have. We’re asking for your support to defeat the politicians funded by the National Rifle Association (NRA) who block needed reforms. Support the brave young people of Santa Fe High School, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, and other young people who demand an end to the carnage. Give generously to PDA to sustain our efforts. Then please send an e-mail demanding that your elected officials Support Common Sense Gun Safety.
