This week, President Obama announced that his administration will undertake a series of executive actions to “keep guns out of the wrong hands.”
POPVOX has created a special page where you can find out more and weigh in on this proposal by choosing to “support” or “oppose” and posting a personal comment that will be shared with the White House and your Members of Congress.
Your comment (with your chosen screen name and Congressional district) will also be listed in the POPVOX public tally — now cataloged by the Library of Congress for the U.S. Digital Archives — and shared with journalists across the country.
The White House describes these steps in its Fact Sheet:
- Keeping guns out of the wrong hands through background checks.
- Making communities safer from gun violence.
- Increasing mental health treatment and reporting to the background check system.
- Shaping the future of gun safety technology.
The President will discuss the plan in a televised live town hall meeting on Thursday night, hosted by CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
This is a neutral, apples-to-apples, straight-to-decisionmakers, transparent, public, verified tally of actual input from constituents. POPVOX is not a poll. it is a chance for those who care enough to raise their voice on the issue, to do so effectively.
