I called my senator today. All I got was an answering machine, but I left a message. I told him that I thought it was very important to do something to and gun violence. In almost all countries that have enacted strict gun laws, the number of crimes involving guns has gone down, and I believe that the same thing would happen if the United States took such actions. I hope that laws are passed that ban automatic weapons that have high-capacity magazines. Also, a lot should be passed to require a background check before any gun is sold in America. It was kind of hard to remember the talking points, but at least I remember those two. If I decide to call again, I think I will print out the talking points, so that I can remember what to say. I have cerebral palsy, and it is difficult for me to speak on the telephone, but I feel this issue is very important which is why I wanted to make the call.

Yesterday, I sent the email message to Congress, and to Pres. Obama expressing my concern about the need for passing strict gun laws. I will continue to look over the website, and see if there’s anything else that I can do.

I really like the website because it lists several ways that one can help to move things forward.
