Sample Letter to Elected Officials

Dear (Senator/Representative),

As your constituent, I’m urging you to prioritize gun safety legislation. The mass shootings in Buffalo, New York, in which ten people of color were murdered, and in Uvalde, Texas, in which 19 children and two adults were murdered, are instances of the tragic gun violence we witness in America all too often.

As an elected official, it is your job to take bold action to prevent these senseless tragedies from happening. We cannot wait for another mass shooting. Please do the right thing and pass gun safety legislation.

  • Solutions to Gun Violence (Johns Hopkins University, Bloomberg School of Public Health) These policies focus on prevention strategies that, if implemented broadly, would significantly reduce gun-related death and injury.
  • Safe Storage (The BulletPoints Project) If guns are kept in the home, storing them safely can prevent firearm injury
