Monday is the one-month anniversary of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.

Twenty innocent children and six brave adults lost their lives, and the tragedy sparked a real debate about gun violence in this country -- at least for now.

Newspaper headlines and TV news anchors are reporting that our number one              priority -- fixing the criminal background check system -- is at the top of the president's agenda. That's a huge victory, and it's thanks to supporters like you.

Unfortunately, our elected leaders can have short memories. Conventional wisdom in Washington, DC says that if the legislative process drags on long enough, the urgency will fade and Congress won’t have to act.

We can’t let them forget Newtown. And we can’t wait for the next tragedy to fix our broken gun laws.

Will you ask your friends and family to join a million fellow Americans and Demand A Plan to end gun violence? Here’s how:
It’s time for Congress to act. More than 835 mayors from across the country have come together to support common sense solutions to end gun violence.

Requiring criminal background checks for all guns sales. Taking assault weapons and high capacity magazines off our streets. And establishing harsh penalties for illegal gun trafficking.

These solutions are within the reach of our leaders in Washington. They just need your support to make it happen.

For the families of Newtown and the 33 Americans who are murdered with guns every day, please spread the word.

Thank you,

Mark Glaze
