ACTION ALERT

TELL CORY GARDNER TO PASS BACKGROUND CHECKS

Colorado’s U.S. Senator Cory  Gardner has accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars from the NRA.  That might be one reason he has not acted on the bill to require universal background checks on gun sales nationwide.  Let him know you want him to act.
