About the Petition
Every year, more than 10,000 Americans die as a result of gun violence. Compare this to fewer than 200 in Canada and under 50 in Japan.
Per capita, the rate of gun homicide in the U.S. is 3.6 per 100,000 people. That's 16 times that of France, 28 times that of Australia, and 60 times the gun death rate of South Korea.
Stand with organizations like Mayors Against Illegal Guns and demand legislation that will help control the rise of gun violence through background checks and the banning of assault weapons.
