Banding together for Peaceful Social Justice for all people.


I just signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Donald Trump: This legislation (S. 446 & H.R. 38) will allow extremely dangerous individuals to carry loaded, concealed guns in states that otherwise would have laws to prevent them from doing so. In essence, states with the weakest gun laws will now set the standard for the nation, allowing individuals with NO SAFETY TRAINING, with VIOLENT MISDEMEANOR CONVICTIONS, or with a demonstrated HISTORY OF DRUG OR ALCOHOL ABUSE to legally carry concealed, loaded guns in every state in the country.Additionally, this legislation not only affects our communities, but many of our K-12 schools, colleges and universities as well. Individuals who may not qualify for a concealed license in one state, would now be able to obtain a permit in another state with minimal or no requirements and legally be able to carry in their home state. For example, a 19-year-old college student in Texas (whose minimum age for a permit is 21) would be able to obtain a permit from Utah (minimum 18) and legally be able to carry on his or her campus in Texas. For these, and other reasons, I ask you to oppose S. 446 & H.R. 38, and similar legislation. Thank you.
