Voices No Longer Silent


The statements made by indvidual signers of our petition are moving. You can read them all HERE, and sign the petition while you're there if you've not already done so.

Here are a few I found worth quoting, for easier access:

I do not want to be asked, "What did you DO about the
killings?" and to say, "Nothing." We all must work together to
ban assault weapons. Kathleen Stoeser, Tucson, Arizona

Is "certain unalienable Rights, that among these are
Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness" now subservient to the second
amendment? Barbara Braden, Tacna, Arizona

C'mon, Ron. We have a right to live in an America, where we
are safe where we work and live. You are the perfect person to lead the charge.
Time to lead. Kathleen Hale, Oro Valley, Arizona

Because human life is worth more than the ability to bear
arms. Neil Kemp, Auckland, New Zealand

Ron, I know that leadership on this could be a political
nightmare, but it is the right thing to do. If not now, when? Karen
Christensen, Tucson, Arizona

The violence has to stop. Enough of the NRA's profit driven
fear mongering! James Vavra, Tucson, Arizona

This madness has got to stop NOW before one more innocent
human being is mowed down. What if one of these people was your child? Anna
McDowell, Phoenix, Arizona

And, finally,

Rep. Barber, if not you, who? Robert Phillips, Tucson, Arizona
