We need to close legal loopholes like the one that led to the shooting in Charleston, we need to fight for comprehensive background checks to keep guns out of the wrong hands.

Friend,

Nine people were killed last Thursday at the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon.

I’m praying for all their families today, but we owe them much more than prayer. Tragedies like these aren’t acts of God; they’re acts of men, and it’s our responsibility to prevent them.

Taking on the gun lobby will be tough, but I’m ready for this fight. We need to close legal loopholes like the one that led to the shooting in Charleston, we need to fight for comprehensive background checks to keep guns out of the wrong hands -- and we need to punish gun dealers and hold manufacturers accountable when they break the rules.

About 33,000 Americans die every year because of gun violence. Our loved ones are dying, and we can do something about it. A movement of people calling for progress -- and a president willing to wage this fight -- can make a difference.
