Tell Democrats: Set the bar high on gun safety
Every piece of potential legislation to end gun violence will begin its journey through Congress in the Senate Judicary Committee. As MSNBC's Rachel Maddow has said, "Whatever the Senate Democrats do on this issue will set the bar for Republicans in the House to compromise away from. You're never going to get any better." The Committee has 10 Democrats and 8 Republicans, and passing legislation onto the the full Senate only requires a majority vote.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein will chair a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. Tell the members to support ambitious legislation, and we'll deliver your petitions beforehand. Hearings like this will help decide which legislation moves forward and which dies in committee.
Tell Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee: Set the bar high and support the most ambitious gun safety legislation possible.
