America is no different than any other collective of people and leaders: If we want our leaders to do something, we have to make them act, and the only way we have ever made our leaders act is by letting them know that we in our millions want them to act.
If we want to see reasonable, life-saving gun laws in this country, we need to support President Obama in the efforts he alluded to last night, and we have to tell our US Representatives and Senators that we support him. We have to flood them with calls and emails. Flood them.
Here are those numbers again:
White House: 202-456-1111
US Representatives & Senators: 202-224-3121
