Ending Gun Violence for a Safer, More Peaceful Nation
Dear Friends,

After the Isla Vista massacre, Richard Martinez, father of one of the victims, said "We don't have to live like this. Too many have died. We should say 'Not one more'."

Martinez has pumped new energy into the gun violence prevention movement, telling the Washington Post "I'm going to ask every person I can find to send a postcard to every politician they can think of with three words on it: 'Not one more'."

To act on Richard's request, the Greenwich Council Against Gun Violence together with The ENOUGH Campaign and the Southwestern CT Brady Chapter will be setting up tables in Greenwich and Stamford in the coming weeks for people to sign postcards that we'll send to Senators who voted against universal background checks.

To give a local face to our
Not One More, I Vote Gun Safety, Greenwich Council Against Gun Violencemessage, we want photos of you, your family, and friends holding "Not One More" and "I vote #gunsafety" signs. From these we'll create a postcard with a montage of the photos and a demand for Congress to pass universal background checks.

 
Here's our message to Senators who voted "No" to close loopholes that let people buy guns without background checks.  The postcard front will be a montage of your "Not One More" photos.

By making our voices heard, we are creating positive change. Following the outcry from Isla Vista, the House passed bipartisan legislation to increase funding for the N

ational Instant Criminal Background Check system. It's the first vote on gun safety reform in the House since the Sandy Hook shooting. We know gun laws keep us safe from gun violence. Brady background checks have blocked more than two million purchases by convicted felons, domestic abusers and other dangerous people.

With the latest shootings in Las Vegas and Oregon, Congressional action may now be possible. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is testing the waters for a vote on the universal background check bill that failed to pass last year. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi continues to say the companion House bill will pass if it's allowed to come to the floor for a vote.

We need to keep the pressure on to get Congress to act. Please take a moment to honor all those killed by gun violence and all those grieving. Take your "Not One More" photo and send it to the Greenwich Council Against Gun Violence at GreenwichCAGV@icloud.com or post it to their Facebook page as soon as possible.

As always, thank you for turning your anger and sorrow over the senseless loss of life into action.
