Reject the George Zimmerman Armed Vigilante Act
Stop Trayvon's killer, and more like him, from carrying loaded guns in your state.
Armed and dangerous people legally carrying loaded and hidden handguns in your neighborhood. "George Zimmermans" walking the streets of your community. That's the gun lobby's vision of America. But it's not ours.
Just days after the Trayvon Martin tragedy, the gun lobby is working on Capitol Hill to nationalize Florida's dangerous and irresponsible laws. Help us stop this!
E-mail your U.S. Senators today! "Reject the 'George Zimmerman Armed Vigilante Act'. Oppose S. 2188 and S. 2213."
If your state has tougher, more sensible laws, that would prevent someone like Trayvon Martin's killer – who had an arrest record and a violent past – from getting a concealed carry permit, tough luck.
These new bills would force your state to honor the concealed carry permits of other states, even states like Florida, with abhorrently low standards.
Make no mistake, this is the vision of the gun lobby. Guns everywhere, in virtually anyone's hands.
It is up to us, the American people, to flatly reject this vision and stop the George Zimmerman Armed Vigilante Act
Please take action today and after you've e-mailed, please also forward this message to your family and friends.
