Colorado Ceasefire …. Working for Freedom from Gun Violence
Support Colorado Ceasefire
Our work is totally funded by individuals such as yourself!
The news is almost too much to bear. Another mass shooting, this being the worst in modern history.
The carnage at the Las Vegas event, where almost 600 Americans were killed or wounded, was like that of a battlefield. Yet one man, apparently working alone, did all that damage. This is what can and did happen when weapons of war are in the hands of civilians. America’s foolhardiness with firearm policies has claimed yet more victims.
Will this be just another act of madness remarked on and then forgotten with the next news event?
We can’t let that happen. It is madness that America continues to accept these tragedies as just a normal part of American life.
Meanwhile, Congress is considering bills that would loosen gun laws — including:
- federally mandating that all states accept the concealed weapons permits of all other states regardless of their own state rules
- letting manufacturers decide what is classified as an armor-piercing (cop-killer) bullet
- relaxing laws on the interstate transport of firearms, and
- and making gun silencers more easily obtainable.
We need for you to act today. Please call your U.S. Senators and Representative and demand that they make America safer by increasing our gun regulations…not loosening them. You can also click here to send them a note directly.

You are also invited to a candlelight vigil for Las Vegas victims hosted by Indivisible Denver. Speakers include state Sen. Rhonda Fields and Ceasefire’s Tom Mauser.
