The tragic shootings in Connecticut touched everyone and resulted in a feeling that "enough is enough". If you feel similarly, here are some things you can do that were suggested by a friend of mine:
1) Call Dianne Feinstein’s office and tell her that we support her plan to introduce a bill on the first day of Congress to ban assault weapons (415-393-0707).
2) Call/write Pres. Obama and tell him that prayers are not enough and that it’s time for him to make gun control a priority (202-456-1111).
3) Call the NRA and ask them how much is enough (1-800-672-3888). Ask why you can buy a gun at a gun show without a background check. Ask them why common citizens need assault weapons designed for warfare.
4) Pass this on to the people in your network.
