Gun lobby extremists and their allies in Congress want to impose a law that
will let dangerous people like George Zimmerman carry concealed guns nationwide. 

America’s Mayors Launch New Campaign

America’s Mayors Launch Campaign Against Effort to Strip States’ Power to Set Requirements for Carrying Concealed Guns

September 7, 2011

Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a bipartisan coalition of more than 600 U.S. mayors, has launched a national campaign against legislation in the U.S. House that would eliminate
 every state’s right to setminimum standards for carrying a loaded, concealed firearm within its borders.

The campaign’s website, OurLivesOurLaws.org, showcases the broad public opposition to H.R. 822, the National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act.  Major police, prosecutor and anti-domestic violence organizations oppose this bill because it would endanger police officers and undermine states’ efforts to keep their communities safe.  Mayors Against Illegal Guns is urging concerned citizens to take action and tell Congress to reject this bill by signing the petition at OurLivesOurLaws.org.

Tell Washington:

Don’t take away our right to keep our communities safe.

I oppose efforts by politicians in Washington to override the decisions of local communities and police when it comes to carrying concealed, loaded guns in our state. Our lives are at stake – so honor our state’s laws.
