What we didn't hear today.

Friend -- Today, this administration made it clear where it stands on gun violence prevention: against the desires of a majority of Americans, including gun owners. Instead, they cast their lot with the gun lobby -- and a group that 67 percent of gun owners say has been "overtaken by lobbyists and gun manufacturers." In today's speech, they touched on a lot of things: the election from five months ago, the unfunded border wall, the Electoral College, Charlton Heston. But here's what they didn't speak about -- at all: gun violence prevention. We didn't hear about the 88 percent of gun owners who support requiring a permit to carry a concealed gun in public. We didn't hear about the 80 percent of gun owners who support a mandatory background check for all gun purchases. Most of all, we didn't hear the truth: When it comes to protecting our communities from gun violence, there are no more party lines -- there are just millions of Americans who believe in a common-sense approach, and are tired of seeing preventable tragedies. OFA volunteers are working hard to bring this majority together -- organizing to make sure these common-sense policies have the support they need.

Friend --

Today, this administration made it clear where it stands on gun violence prevention: against the desires of a majority of Americans, including gun owners.

Instead, they cast their lot with the gun lobby -- and a group that 67 percent of gun owners say has been "overtaken by lobbyists and gun manufacturers." In today's speech, they touched on a lot of things: the election from five months ago, the unfunded border wall, the Electoral College, Charlton Heston.

But here's what they didn't speak about -- at all: gun violence prevention.

We didn't hear about the 88 percent of gun owners who support requiring a permit to carry a concealed gun in public. We didn't hear about the 80 percent of gun owners who support a mandatory background check for all gun purchases.

Most of all, we didn't hear the truth: When it comes to protecting our communities from gun violence, there are no more party lines. There are just millions of Americans who believe in a common-sense approach, and are tired of seeing preventable tragedies.

OFA volunteers are working hard to bring this majority together -- organizing to make sure these common-sense policies have the support they need.

Sign on today, and let us know you want to get plugged into efforts on the ground:
