WASHINGTON, March 24, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, while attending March For Our Lives, Ambassador Al Hoffman announced the formation of Americans for Gun Safety Now! (AFGSN), a new advocacy organization dedicated to seeing Congress pass comprehensive gun reform before December 2018. AFGSN already has support from elected officials, business and community leaders and key political donors from across the country, all who believe in creating a national strategy for bringing about real reform, protections and changes to the nation's gun laws.
"Americans for Gun Safety Now! is honored to stand in solidarity with the thousands of students, including survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre, to rally for change in our nation's capital," said Ambassador Hoffman. "These students represent our next generation of leaders. Our new advocacy group is dedicated to supporting their courageous efforts by calling on Congress to pass a six-provision legislative package to make schools and the entire nation safer."
Specifically, Americans for Gun Safety Now! is asking Congress to eliminate bump stocks, limit high capacity magazines and armor piercing ammo, raise the national limit for all gun sales to 21 years of age, expand universal background checks and provide additional support for mental health services, while still supporting 2nd amendment rights.
AFGSN! is encouraging everyone in the United States who supports its six provisions to join the campaign by signing up at AmericansforGunSafetyNow.com and joining the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
