Dear 5849376,

It's been almost four months since the tragedy at Sandy Hook, and Congress is finally taking action on a gun violence prevention bill.

Debate is scheduled to begin today, and a vote could happen as soon as tomorrow.

It would be unconscionable for any senator to vote against this bill, or add any amendments that would undermine what is already an extremely modest expansion of our current laws.

Call Sen. Grassley now and ask him to vote for the gun bill without any amendments that would undermine it. Click here for a sample script and the number to call.

So far the NRA has successfully blocked stronger reforms, including a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. But the bill on the table is one that's supported by over 90% of the American people — including the vast majority of NRA members.

This bill expands (though stops short of making universal) background checks for gun buyers, and it makes it harder to smuggle guns between states. We wish there were a stronger bill up for a vote and we'll continue to fight for real reforms. But in the meantime, this bill represents commonsense reforms that will save lives if enough senators stand up to the NRA and vote yes.

It's been over a quarter of a century since we've had a victory on the federal level on the regulation of dangerous guns.

But in just the last few months, over 460,000 CREDO Action members have signed petitions, made phone calls and marched in the streets.

And this is after over a quarter of a million members signed petitions and made 2,345 calls to the White House demanding a reinstatement of the assault weapons ban after the Aurora, Colorado, massacre in a movie theater.

We have a short window of time to push members of the Senate to pass this bill. Senators need to hear from constituents like you to ensure that our voices are not drowned-out by the NRA and its supporters. NRA members are calling to oppose the bill. We need you to call in and show the Senate that Americans support stronger gun regulations.

Call Sen. Grassley now and ask him to vote for the gun bill without amendments that would undermine it. Click the link below for a sample script and the number to call:
