Burlington, VT – Jim Dean, Chair of Democracy for America, released the following statement in response to the President’s call for action on gun reform.
“I am pleased by President Obama’s swift action and strong words on gun reform. Here in the United States we need to create a gun culture of responsibility and accountability. The President’s announcement that he will do everything in his power to pass bans on assault weapons, and high capacity clips, as well as closing the gun show loop hole by requiring background checks on all gun purchases is a much needed step in the right direction.”
“Here at Democracy for America, we stand at the ready to provide any and all grassroots support needed to pass these much needed reforms. As the President pointed out this is something a majority of the American people support. It’s time for groups like the NRA, and legislators to stop protecting the gun makers, and start protecting the American people.”
