Our own Senators Burr and Tillis are willing to hold the whole country hostage -- from blocking action on gun violence in Congress to hamstringing the Supreme Court -- all to defend the gun lobby’s dangerously skewed view of 2nd Amendment rights. Enough.
Tell Senators Burr and Tillis to stop putting the gun lobby ahead of North Carolina lives:
PETITION TO SENATORS RICHARD BURR AND THOM TILLIS:
Stop holding the people of this country hostage to the narrow interests -- and skewed interpretation of the 2nd Amendment -- of the gun lobby: give the next Supreme Court nominee full consideration.
With gun violence taking a devastating toll on more and more families across North Carolina and throughout the country and critical legal issues arising every day around gun safety laws, we can’t afford to wait a year for a fully functioning Supreme Court.
We call on you to end this unprecedented obstruction immediately and do your constitutional duty for the American people. Do your job, Senators. Lives are at stake.
