Hello to all following our efforts to improve gun violence prevention. Last week I sent donations to both Newtown Action Alliance and Moms Demand Action to help support their courageous efforts to address Congress and local establishments such as Starbucks and Staples. I encourage all to do the same. These groups are organized and able to make an impact. With our help they will keep the pressure on until Congress actually does something to help gun violence prevention. Today I delivered a letter ( form provided by Moms Demand Action ) to the manager of our local Staples requesting they set a policy of no guns permitted on the premises that was signed by Judy and me. The manager was very cordial and stated that this was not Staples corporate policy. I encouraged the manager to request a change in this policy. She indicated that she would pass on my request. They need to hear from us. Let your voice be heard!
