Get Involved: Gun Violence Prevention
In the upcoming weeks, I will be introducing two new gun bills that will (1) require background checks on all gun purchases, and (2) limit ammunition magazines to ten rounds. This is only a start to reduce gun violence in our community. Of course, I can’t do this alone—I’ll need your help and support.
Here are a few things you can do:
• Demand a plan <http://www.demandaplan.org/> by signing the petition to let your state
legislators know that you’ve had enough.
• Tell your state legislators <use attachment> to stand with you and the majority of
Coloradans by voting for the new package of badly needed gun reforms moving through
• Support <https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/call-upon-congress-vote-yes-
our President’s decision for common sense gun violence prevention measures.
• Join me <http://www.thecell.org/events/> on the 19th along with Governor Hickenlooper
in a constructive discussion addressing gun violence.
Get Involved: Capital Punishment in Colorado
Our laws are a reflection of the society that we live in—the community that we live in. And
some laws are best left up to legislators to create and implement. But other laws are best left up
to the people to decide. And I think the Colorado death penalty is one of them.
In the upcoming weeks, I will be proposing a bill that will allow the fate of the death penalty
to be decided by Coloradans—not the State. Issues surrounding capital punishment affect the
entire community. The perpetrator’s victim(s); the families of the victim; the families of the
perpetrator; neighbors; classmates; these issues affect us all. That is why I believe it is important
that whatever the outcome of the death penalty—abolishing or maintaining it—that decision was
made by the people of Colorado.
This is a difficult issue to pursue and I need your help and support to make sure your voices and
the voices of everyone in Colorado are heard. Please visit my website and sign our petition <linkto new site- Colorado voters> that demands that your voices are heard on a subject that deeply influences our lives.
