What do voters think about gun laws?Despite the controversy surrounding the issue, the majority of voters favor common sense gun laws.
Tell your legislators that more guns just mean more gun deaths and injury! Far from keeping us safe, the increased presence of guns places everyone at risk. Tell lawmakers that we do not want guns in restaurants and bars, where our families eat and relax. Keep our communities safe by keeping loaded hidden guns out of public places.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I would like to voice my strong opposition to allowing guns in public places such as restaurants and bars. These are places where communities and families come together, and the presence of guns puts everyone at risk.
We vote and we want to see leadership from our lawmakers to oppose all legislation that would allow hidden loaded guns in more public places; keep families and communities safe from gun violence. Lives depend on it!

"This will serve me a lesson," said he, "to look where I step. For if I should kill another bug or beetle I should surely cry again, and crying rusts my jaws so that I cannot speak."
Thereafter he walked very carefully, with his eyes on the road, and when he saw a tiny ant toiling by he would step over it, so as not to harm it. The Tin Woodman knew very well he had no heart, and therefore he took great care never to be cruel or unkind to anything.
"You people with hearts," he said, "have something to guide you, and need never do wrong; but I have no heart, and so I must be very careful. When Oz gives me a heart of course I needn't mind so much."

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
'What for?' said Alice.
'Did you say "What a pity!"?' the Rabbit asked.
'No, I didn't,' said Alice: 'I don't think it's at all a pity. I said "What for?"'
'She boxed the Queen's ears—' the Rabbit began. Alice gave a little scream of laughter. 'Oh, hush!' the Rabbit whispered in a frightened tone. 'The Queen will hear you! You see, she came rather late, and the Queen said—'
'Get to your places!' shouted the Queen in a voice of thunder, and people began running about in all directions, tumbling up against each other; however, they got settled down in a minute or two, and the game began. Alice thought she had never seen such a curious croquet-ground in her life; it was all ridges and furrows; the balls were live hedgehogs, the mallets live flamingoes, and the soldiers had to double themselves up and to stand on their hands and feet, to make the arches.
