President Obama and members of Congress

We need common-sense gun laws! Over 350 college presidents have signed a petition endorsing gun control, yet the student voice urging for stronger gun laws has become increasingly less visible. Make your voice heard, and let Congress know that we will no longer tolerate their inaction!

In light of the atrocious acts of violence at Virginia Tech, Tucson, Aurora, Oak Creek, and Newtown, we can no longer stand by the side-lines while our elected officials fail to pass even the most common-sense gun control legislation. When 90% of the public support background checks, it is incomprehensible that our Senators would reject a bill with such broad societal support.

As students, we are your constituents; the NRA and the gun lobby are not. It is time to take action against gun violence, and we have every moral obligation to prevent another senseless tragedy.
