Dear GVCP Member:
NEXT REGULAR GVCP MEETING is Saturday, March 31st, 1:00 PM (Lunch), 1:30 PM (Meeting). Mae’s Restaurant, 4182 Lakeville Rd (Route 20A) Geneseo. Note Saturday meeting date.
?This Month’s Letter: Don’t let Congress make mass shootings easier!
The House of Representatives has already passed the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act. That means that all states would be required to recognize the gun laws of other states. The result: gun owners from states with minimal restrictions would be allowed to carry their weapons anywhere. This bill [S.446] will go to the Senate next. Our senators must strongly oppose it! Please write to Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand at 100 State St., Rochester NY 14614 telling them that they should work hard against this terrible legislation. You can send them email messages by using their websites. [Adapted from data provided by The Indivisible Team.]
Save the Date: Friday, April 20th National Student Walkout. This is a nationwide protest of our leaders’ failure to pass laws that protect us from gun violence. Mass shootings happen far too frequently in America, and we as a nation have become numb to seeing the news. After each one, the same cycle takes place: the media spend less than a week on the story, politicians offer their “thoughts and prayers,” and nothing ever changes. But after the horrific massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, young Americans are taking matters into their own hands. On April 20th, the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting, American students will walk out of class and protest. [[Adapted from data provided by The Indivisible Team.]
