8 people were killed by a truck in NY. 900 have been killed by gunfire in the last 30 days. We are watching.

1 month update SINCE Las Vegas Massacre (Oct. 1st):

More than 3,000 people have been shot.
(Update: From October 2–31, the nonprofit identified reports of 3,791 people shot in America.) 

At least 900 of them have died.
(Update: Of those wounded, 1,195 died. The figure does not include the 58 who died during the Las Vegas mass shooting on October 1)

This is what that looks like in guns… (gray area for the dead). Each symbol represents a family torn apart, sorrow, pain, suffering and, because we are America, the incredible hardship of huge medical bills for the survivors.

This is ONE month in America.

In the next few weeks, we will be bombarded by issues related to a radicalized Muslim man and his killing of 8 people with his truck. Trump will be rolling in his xenophobic mud as he tries to leverage this tragedy into more authoritarian power for himself.

While we are distracted by the one-man circus that is our President, Congress will try to pass the “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act” to allow gun owners from states with no regulations to carry them into states that actually care about their citizens.

Do not let this happen. Make your calls now. Let your legislators know you are still watching. Doing all these actions will take less than 5 minutes.

Action #1 – NO on H.R. 38 – “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act” – They’re trying to sneak this through!

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] to ask Rep. [___] to vote NO on the “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act”  (H.R. 38).

More script if you want it: …which requires states to honor the concealed carry weapons permits of every other state, regardless of how lenient they might be, and would override federal restrictions on carrying a gun in a school zone and in federally owned public areas.

Rep. Julia Brownley: (CA-26): DC (202) 225-5811, Oxnard (805) 379-1779, T.O. (805) 379-1779

Rep. Salud Carbajal: (CA-24): DC (202) 225-3601, SB (805) 730-1710 SLO (805) 546-8348

NOTE: The following DEMOCRATS have co-signed with the GOP to support this horror. If you’re in their districts, CALL THEM OUT!

Rep. Cuellar, Henry [D-TX-28]*
Rep. Peterson, Collin C. [D-MN-7]*

Quick read: In fact, a dozen states put no restrictions at all on who gets to carry a concealed firearm so long as people meet minimal federal qualifications for being able to buy a gun. Arizona, where no permit is required for carrying a concealed weapon, should not be allowed to wander armed into a state such as California, which has some of the strictest gun controls in the country, without meetings its requirements.

Action #2 –  YES on H.R. 3999 & S. 1916  “Automatic Gunfire Prevention Act”

HOUSE – HR 3999
