A Mom's Power to Vote

 


Tomorrow is Election Day and there are few other ways to exercise our power as Moms that are as easy as voting. What’s important to you? Education? The economy? Gun violence? How well do your elected officials represent you and the issues that are important to you? Whether they do or whether they don’t, you can let them know by simply casting your vote.

Check out this hilarious video that points out if we don’t speak for ourselves, someone else will!

Another Moms’ group is calling for sensible action on gun laws. Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is helping those who care about gun violence with this list of candidates nationwide who have voted or championed sensible gun laws like background checks. If you care about this issue, check the list and vote accordingly. 

Every day, 86 Americans are killed with a gun in the United States. Every month, more than 43 women are killed by an intimate partner with a gun. There have been more than 87 school shootings since Newtown.

Clearly, we have a problem with gun violence in this country. We can respect the Second Amendment while doing so much more to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. The most important policy step we can take to reduce gun violence is to require a background check on all gun sales. In most states, criminals, domestic abusers, and the dangerously mentally ill can avoid a background check by going online or to a gun show and purchasing a gun from an unlicensed seller - no questions asked. In states that require background checks for all gun sales, 38% fewer women are shot to death by an intimate partner.

Learn more about national and state candidates who have supported common-sense measures like closing the loophole on background checks at the Everytown Gun Sense Voter page. You can look up endorsed candidates by state and find out who is a Gun Sense candidate. And please vote tomorrow!
