Jeff Saxton is working to become a gun violence voter in 2014

Jeff Saxton

On her birthday, my daughter had a handgun pointed inches from her face while being robbed on a street in Philadelphia. The absurd claim made by the NRA's Executive V.P., Wayne LaPierre, that "a good person with a gun stops a bad person with a gun" is a bankrupt and dishonest point of view, as my adult daughter and her adult male friend were approached quietly and quickly from behind and IF they had ANY sort of firearm, it would've been impossible to defend themselves with it. Rather, what weapons they might have had would now be used committing more crimes!

What is needed in NOT more guns. We need universal background checks for all firearms sold in the United States, a policy which is supported by over 85% of Americans and a majority of NRA members. We need RESPONSIBLE firearm ownership and purchasing procedures, whose absolute primary priority is to PREVENT firearms from falling into the hands of criminals.

The time is now to stop these needless killings and maimings!
