if this gets 25,000 signatures, they have to discuss it at a White House meeting and respond. all you need is an email and a name. thank you.
the above reads:
we petition the obama administration to: Increase the Discussion, Regulation and Taxation of assault weapons by using Article 2,Section 3 of the Constitution
to convene a Special Commission of 51 Senators to create legislation to:
collect a 25% tax on all new gun purchases, used for improving our nation's mental health screening and care.
change firearm laws to be similar to automobile laws, requiring titles, training, testing, insurance, and inspection for guns, and declare guns with clips holding 7 or more bullets to be assault style.
create an internet forum for citizens to participate in a rational discussion of the epidemic of gun violence, and begin to reduce the influence of pro-gun lobbies.
While gun ownership is a right, the word right means both "a just claim or title" and "adherence to moral and legal principles and authority." There are more guns than cars in America, and the amount of laws should reflect that. Created: Dec 17, 2012 Issues: Consumer Protections, Firearms, Health Care
