Thank you for continuing the fight against the NRA.

Thanks for signing the petition to the senators who voted against the Manchin-Toomey compromise amendment on background checks in the gun bill. Now we need to spread the word. Can you tell three friends?

We have teachers standing up to gunmen, but the Senate won't stand up to the #NRA. Shame on them. #Newtown #p2

Thanks for all you do.

Here's a sample message to send to your friends:

There wasn't even a vote on background checks.

Dear Friend,

It's outrageous.

And shameful.

Because of 45 senators, including four Democrats, the American people won't get an up-or-down vote on even the most modest part of the president's gun regulation agenda.

At the behest of the NRA, these cowardly Senators filibustered a bipartisan compromise that would have expanded background checks. Expanding background checks is supported by 90 percent of the American people. But it's opposed by the NRA and the gun manufacturers. And as a result, 45 Senators mounted a filibuster to kill the bill.

Tell your senator: Shame on you for filibustering the bipartisan compromise on expanding background checks and subsequently killing our best chance at strengthening gun regulations in the wake of Newtown.


Every attentive adulthood, as it were, parts its good humoured dog, but it is the outrageous dew of
