Stop the School Shooting
For Immediate Release:
Republican Congressman Chris Smith says that he feels sorry for the victims of the recent spate of gun violence. We are tired of politicians "feeling sorry"! We demand action right now! This do-nothing Congress has sat around avoiding the issue of gun control for too long.
Since the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook in December of 2012 there have been 74 school shootings. Just this year we have already had 37 shootings on school grounds. What more does this Congress need? How many innocent lives have been lost since Chris Smith took office over 30 years ago. Yet Smith has opposed universal background checks, and has done nothing to ban the sale of assault rifles, like the one used earlier this week in Portland. As many of you know, I have promised not to sell myself to special interest groups like the NRA.
I will stand up to powerful lobbyists and dedicate myself to taking assault rifles and other dangerous weapons off the street. I will fight to make sure that background checks, waiting periods and limits on the sale of all guns becomes the law throughout this entire country. I ask that you do what's right to protect our children on November 4th and vote Scolavino for Congress.
LETS STOP SCHOOL SHOOTINGS NOW!!!!!
