Mayors Against Illegal Guns is a national, bipartisan coalition of mayors working to make America’s communities safer. Join the mayor of your city in asking Washington to take common-sense steps to keep illegal guns out of dangerous hands.

President Obama announced a new task force headed by Vice President Biden to address the epidemic of gun violence in America. He committed to delivering a set of concrete proposals for new laws no later than January.

But, as he said, he can’t do this alone. That's why we need to step up. We need to let our representatives in Congress know it's time to act now.

Call your members of Congress and Demand A Plan:

Here are three common sense principals for any comprehensive legislative plan:

1. Require criminal background checks for every gun sold in America

2. Ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines that enable mass killing

3. Make gun trafficking a federal crime, with stiff penalties for those who arm criminals
