Dear Amnesty Supporter,
Please call your two senators and representative as soon as possible urging them to support full, common sense gun reform, including universal background checks and an assault weapons ban, as well as the ban proposed on so-called bump stocks, used to make guns fire bullets more quickly. We must also tell them to oppose the proposed silencer and concealed carry bills that would likely lead to more deaths.
Saving lives from gun violence is a human rights issue and the US government is obligated to address it.

Hello, I live in (city and state) and I urge (Senator or Representative______) to pass full, common sense gun reform to help save lives. Such reform must not only include a ban on so-called bump stocks, but also universal background checks, an assault weapons ban and federal research on gun violence prevention. I also oppose the silencer bill and the concealed carry reciprocity bill, which are likely to lead to more deaths. We have the human right to live free from gun violence and the US government has an obligation to protect that right. Thank you.
