It's all about the follow-through

Friend -- I wrote you last week after 45 senators sided with the gun lobby and voted against expanding background checks for gun sales. I said we weren't going to forget -- and that we weren't going to stop fighting until we get the job done. I'm writing today to follow through on that. Next week, we'll deliver an OFA petition to Congress demanding that they take common- sense action to reduce gun violence. But it'll only be as powerful as the number of supporters behind it. Please take a minute and add your name to this petition right now: my.barackobama.com/Sign-the-Petition In politics, there are two kinds of people: Those who say they're going to do something, and those who actually do it. I have no doubt about which of those groups OFA supporters are in. But if we want Congress to get serious about reducing gun violence, and if we don't want to see the fire behind this issue slip away, we are the ones who have to keep it going. We choose who represents us in Congress -- and what the constituents want is something that no politician can afford to ignore. That's why your voice is such an important part of this fight. People like me can talk all we want, but your representatives want to hear from you. This letter will go to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker John Boehner, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on behalf of OFA next week.

Friend --

I wrote you last week after 45 senators sided with the gun lobby and voted against expanding background checks for gun sales.

I said we weren't going to forget -- and that we weren't going to stop fighting until we get the job done.

I'm writing today to follow through on that.

Next week, we'll deliver an OFA petition to Congress demanding that they take common-sense action to reduce gun violence.

But it'll only be as powerful as the number of supporters behind it.

Please take a minute and add your name to this petition right now.

In politics, there are two kinds of people: Those who say they're going to do something, and those who actually do it.
