Yesterday, we woke up to the second mass shooting in just as many days. I’m heartbroken for El Paso and Dayton, and to all the families who have just endured unimaginable loss.
We need commonsense gun reform — now, before the next mass shooting, to stop the daily gun violence on our streets, and to make sure that our families and loved ones are safe.
But Mitch McConnell and Republicans in the Senate are blocking legislation that could help address this epidemic.
During the last election, we flipped the House. And in February, the Democratic-led House passed bipartisan legislation that would make a meaningful impact on this crisis.
But five months after passing the House, and more than six and a half years after Sandy Hook, that bill is still sitting on Mitch McConnell’s desk. It’s inexcusable.
It’s clear Republicans don’t have the courage to do something about this crisis. We can’t wait for them to act — because they won’t. If we’re going to address the gun violence epidemic in our country, we need to take back the Senate in 2020.
I’ll fight my heart out to make sure Democrats win up and down the ballot in 2020 — but if we’re going to beat Republicans and the gun lobby, it’s going to take a grassroots movement.
Will you chip in today to help Democrats flip the Senate? Your donation will be split among funds that will go to the eventual Democratic Senate nominees in 23 races and Senators Doug Jones and Tina Smith.
If you’ve saved payment info with ActBlue Express, your donation will process automatically and be evenly split to support the eventual Democratic nominee for Senate in AK, AR, AZ, CO, GA, IA, ID, KS, KY, LA, ME, MS, MT, NC, NE, NM, OK, SC, SD, TN, TX, WV, WY, and Doug Jones and Tina Smith:
As long as Mitch McConnell-led Senate Republicans are in power, they will stonewall and block any attempts for change. That’s because they answer to the gun lobbyists who sign their checks — no matter how many innocent people die each and every day at the hands of their inaction.
Enough is enough. We must call out what happened in El Paso and Dayton for what they are: domestic terrorism. It’s a threat to the United States, and we’ve seen its devastating toll this weekend. We need to call out the president himself for advancing racism and white supremacy. And then we need to take action.
It’s powerfully important that we support Democrats across the country and take back the Senate in 2020 — so we can take power back from Republicans, fight back against the gun lobby, and address the gun violence epidemic head on.
So I’m asking you to join me in supporting our Democratic Senate candidates in states across the country. Can you chip in today to help Democrats flip the Senate in 2020?
Thanks for being a part of this fight,
