Good news! Just in the past few days - since Brian Malte's email to
you last week - you've added eight new cosponsors to H.R 2324, Rep. Mike Castle and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy's bill to close the gun show loophole.
Thanks to you and others, we are getting closer to our ambitious goal of 100 cosponsors by Martin Luther King Day, January 18.
We can do this. When we keep the pressure on, we will close the gun show loophole.
But it will take every voice ... and every dollar ... to help pass
this common sense bill to keep dangerous weapons out of the hands of dangerous people.
Please make a contribution to the Brady Campaign now to help save lives.
The gun lobby will fight us every step of the way with its ridiculous
mantra of "any gun, anywhere, for anybody." But you and I have been in this fight for a long time. And common sense is on our side.
We want 100 cosponsors by January 18, but we are also pressing for a congressional hearing on the issue, and we are working with our media contacts to get editorials and interviews on all major news programs.
Brady and Million Mom March Chapters - we have more than 70 - are also organizing in key districts to help get more cosponsors.
This kind of all-out effort is how we passed the Brady Law.
But our victories do not come cheap - especially against the mammoth gun lobby machine.
