Rally in the Rotunda for Background Checks
Every campaign has a critical, signature moment when it requires an unprecedented show of citizen support to advance a cause to a position where victory becomes possible.
May 16, 2016 is that moment when we need YOU to help pass legislation establishing comprehensive background checks on gun sales in Pennsylvania.
A new public opinion poll released by Franklin & Marshall College reported that 88 percent of Pennsylvanians support comprehensive background checks on gun sales. With the November elections fast approaching, NOW IS THE TIME for our state legislators to hear the voice of the 88 % who want them to act and pass this common sense measure to protect our children and families.
PA United for Background Checks, a statewide campaign of organizations and congregations, is calling for Pennsylvanians from cities, towns, suburbs, and rural areas across the Commonwealth to pack the Capitol in Harrisburg on Monday, May 16th for the Rally for Background Checks. The Pennsylvania Senate and the House of Representatives will both be in session that day.
We demand passage of Senate Bill 1049 and House Bill 1010 – NOW.
Three buses will be taking gun sense supporters from Delaware County on May 16th . THESE BUSES ARE ALREADY FULL! If you are interested in attending the rally, please make plans to drive. If you are willing to drive others in order to maximize attendance at the rally, please email or call Delco United Co-Chair, Terry Rumsey: firstname.lastname@example.org or 484-326-1370.
PA United for Background Checks is counting on a strong showing from Delaware County. We realize you may need to take a personal day off from work, or school, or from other scheduled activities. We are asking you to make that sacrifice and to make those arrangements now.
