Peace: Contact your senators and urge them to help reduce gun violence!


The US bishops call for all people to work for a culture of life, and to do more to end violence in our homes. In particular, legislators should: Support measures that control the sale and use of firearms; support measures that make guns safer (especially efforts to prevent their unsupervised use by children and anyone other than the owner); call for sensible regulations of handguns; support legislative efforts that seek to protect society from the violence associated with easy access to deadly weapons, including assault weapons; and make a serious commitment to confront the pervasive role of addiction and mental illness in crime. Support the bishops and their call by sending a letter to your senators here!
