VOLUNTEER FOR THE NATIONAL CAMPAIGN TO #VoteThemOut to #EndGunViolence IN AMERICA.
Sign up HERE to make a pledge and to help our National Campaign to #VoteThemOut to #EndGunViolence in America. We will be endorsing candidates across the nation who will stand with us. 95% of Americans support universal background checks on gun sales and 65% of Americans support a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines. It's time for our elected representatives to listen to us or get voted out.
Gun violence is a problem in America that can’t be ignored. We encourage you to give victims of gun violence a voice, and declare that you’ll be casting a vote in their honor. We are calling the campaign the #GhostVote. The aim of the new campaign is to put common-sense gun laws at the top of the agenda leading to the elections.

Before the Sandy Hook tragedy, it never occurred to us that our 401Ks, 529s, and IRAs and other accounts could be invested in mutual funds and stocks of companies that profit from the sale of guns and ammunition. Sickeningly, gun sales increase after every well publicized mass shooting.
You can help make a difference by unloading your investments in the gun industry. Reuters has compiled a list of more than 500 mutual funds that have stock holdings worth billions in these three gun manufacturers: Vista Outdoors, Sturm Ruger and Smith & Wesson.
