Make the #WearOrange March Count — Oppose Concealed Carry Reciprocity & Hearing Protection Act
Thousands of Americans will participate in #WearOrange Marches, Rallies and other events on Friday and Saturday (6/2-6/3). Help amplify the effect of the #WearOrange campaign by contacting your Senators and House Representative. Tell them to OPPOSE 2 bills that will make our communities less safe — HR38/S446 and HR367/S59!
(Not sure who your members of Congress are? Find out here.)
Here are your talking points:
- I am attending a #WearOrange event this weekend, or, I stand in solidarity with all the people attending #WearOrange events this weekend.
- Vote NO on the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act (HR38/S446). New Jersey should only recognize concealed carry permits from states with the same or higher standards.
- New Jersey’s current laws require gun safety training, restrict gun ownership to people 21 and over, and prohibit people convicted of domestic violence, violent crime and stalking from owning a gun. Under Concealed Carry Reciprocity, domestic abusers, stalkers, and violent criminals from states that don’t have those same restrictions would be able to carry a concealed weapon in New Jersey! This is unacceptable!
- Vote NO on the Hearing Protection Act (HR367/S59). This bill would make it easier to get a gun silencer. Guns silencers make it more dangerous when police have to respond to an active shooter. Protect our police officers and oppose the Hearing Protection Act.
If you have a few more minutes…
- leave a message opposing these two bills for the chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), 202-225-6030
- leave a message opposing the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act for the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Chuck Grassley, (R-IA), 202-224-3744.
- leave a message opposing the Hearing Protection Act for the chair of the Senate Finance Committee, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), 202-224-5251.
Too nervous to call your representatives? No problem! Call them after hours and leave a voicemail. Still too nervous? Don’t worry — you can send them a letter!
