Voices Against Violence

flowerDid you know that 90% of Americans support background checks for all gun purchases? And that 45% of the Senate foiled recent efforts to make that view a law? Are you as outraged as we are?

Every day in the U.S.A., 90 people are killed by a gun. Some are kids, some are moms or dads, some are sisters or brothers. All are missed. If you are as frustrated as we are, there is something you can do to make your voice heard and you don’t even have to get up! You can do it now. It’s so simple and so important that we really hope you will.

All you have to do is this:

1. Text “MYVOICE” to 877877.

2. You will then be asked to text your ZIP code.

3. Next your phone will ring and Paul McCartney will be on the other end with a short message (how often does a Beatle call you?). After that, you will be connected to your state representative’s office.

4. At that point, you can speak up and make a difference. Tell them that you, along with the vast majority of Americans, support background checks on all gun sales and that you vote!! And that you want to make sure that your representative knows that.

Please do your best to get the word out. Let your friends know about this easy way to have impact by posting on Facebook, Twitter or other social media sites. Too many people are dying. It’s time to make some noise and make it count.

*Voices Against Violence was started by Tony Bennett, his son Danny, and the Brady Campaign to stop gun violence.
