Mayors Claim They Won and are Winning
Here is the latest email I received from the Mayors Who Want to Ban All Guns. I humbly suggest that you not stop in your efforts to call, write and visit your federal and state lawmakers. The antis sure aren't going to let up.

Something HUGE happened this week. Just three months after the tragedy in Newtown, CT, Congress took their first votes on gun reform and WE WON! The Senate Judiciary Committee passed legislation to support background checks for all gun sales, restrict the use of high capacity ammo magazines, ban the sale of assault weapons, and make gun trafficking a federal crime with tough penalties.

All four of our top priorities have moved forward, but how do we make sure these bills become laws that will save lives?

The answer is simple: We’re launching a massive grassroots organizing campaign to Demand Action from Congress.

Over the next three weeks, we’re opening campaign offices in ten key states. We’re planning dozens of coordinated actions at the home offices of Senators during the Easter/Passover recess. And we’re recruiting thousands of volunteers to attend rallies, make calls, and put pressure on Congress to pass these bills into law.

We need to act NOW, and we need your support. Can you make a donation of $33 or more to fund the grassroots battle to Demand Action from Congress?

Mayors Against Illegal Guns has been fighting for federal legislation for years, and this is the best opportunity we’ve ever had to move Congress forward. However, our victories in the Senate Judiciary Committee are just the first step.

To reform our national gun laws, we need the full Senate to pass the strongest possible legislation. But that means persuading Senators of both parties with A-ratings from the NRA to put public safety above politics. It also means building a super majority of senators to prevent filibusters and other legislative maneuvers that could stop legislation from moving forward.

This is a huge challenge, and the only way to win is to Demand Action from Congress. We cannot let this moment slip away, and we need your support immediately.

Please donate $33 or more RIGHT NOW to support the fight for gun reform.

Thank you for your support,

Mark Glaze
