Hidden, loaded guns

If the gun lobby and their far right allies in Washington, D.C. get their way, your state will no longer be able to make its own decisions about who can legally carry a hidden gun. Domestic abusers, drug addicts, stalkers, people with violent arrest records and even people with absolutely no training who have never held a gun before could be granted a concealed gun permit in another state, andVermont would have to honor it -- no matter what. A coalition of more than 600 mayors from across America is mounting an aggressive campaign to stop this dangerous legislation before it becomes law, and Im asking you to step up and help out. Join Democracy for America and Mayors Against Illegal Guns in telling Congress -- When it comes to carrying guns in our communities its OUR STATE and OUR LIVES, so we should decide OUR LAWS. Every signature we collect will be hand-delivered to the U.S. House during an important hearing on September 13th -- when the extremists who support the gun-lobby will try to argue for the proposed concealed carry law. Before that happens, we need to organize as much opposition as possible from real Americans in communities nationwide. Our petition is about protecting states rights and the lives of people in our communities. To make sure Congress hears us, we need you to speak out against this mandatory hidden-gun immunity. Add your name to stop Congress from trampling your states rights and putting police and average citizens at risk right now. Washington ideologues want to call the shots on local laws that just arent their business. Lets tell them that to protect OUR LIVES, let us decide OUR LAWS. Thank you for taking action today,
