In the wake of yesterday’s horrific shooting in Virginia we were shocked, saddened and horrified. We join the rest of the country in keeping the victims and their families in our thoughts and prayers.
But it’s all too clear that tears, thoughts and prayers aren’t enough. What motivates our politicians and elected officials is money and votes.
Let your Representatives know you hold them accountable for America’s gun violence problem. They have the power to keep guns out of the hands of those who should not have them. They have the power to ensure that straw purchasers and traffickers face stiff penalties. So long as they refuse to act, this problem will persist and likely intensify.

Tell them you expect them to act and use their power. And remind them where your power comes from — the ballot box.
