DCCC Launches Online “You Deserve A Vote” Ads on Gun Violence Prevention
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched “You Deserve A Vote” paid online advertising today calling on Republicans in Congress to end their obstruction and allow a vote on commonsense gun violence prevention measures, including background checks that more than 80% of Americans support. The advertising directs supporters to a petition at DCCC.org/background-checks where they can make their voice heard demanding a vote. So far, Speaker Boehner has refused to guarantee a House vote on a commonsense compromise for background checks that received the support of a bipartisan Majority in the United States Senate.
“Overwhelming majorities of the American people want a vote on commonsense gun violence prevention like background checks but House Republicans continue to obstruct the will of the American people,” said Jesse Ferguson of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Democrats are engaging grassroots supporters to demand that House Republicans stop kowtowing to a tiny, extreme minority and allow a vote on gun violence prevention.”
The online petition is available here: DCCC.org/background-checks.
The following ads will begin running today:
