Survivors of gun violence and gun control advocates plan to deliver around 2.5 million postcards to elected officials across the country next week to demand political action on the issue.

More than 625,000 people signed on to support the postcard campaign, initiated by the pro-gun control groups Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Everytown for Gun Safety in the days following the May 23 shooting near the University of California Santa Barbara.

Beginning Monday, the organizations plan to hand-deliver a postcard to each supporter’s U.S. House representative, two U.S. senators and governor – about 2.5 million postcards in all. The campaign will run throughout the week.

Just a heads up since the 2 or 3 msnbc watchers would have a lot to do in order to fulfill this task by themselves. How about not burdening the usps with stupid post cards when they should be issuing anti Redskins commemorative stamps or something important like that. NRA. Any response?

Yo. Stupid "Moms". MSNBC. That spoiled brat nutcase in Santa Barbara killed as many people with a knife as he did with a gun. And, for good measure, he ran over a guy on a bicycle with his car and killed him.

Who needs a BMW with eight cylinders anyway? A one cylinder BMW is all you need to get from Point A to Point B.

This is probably an effort which deserves a response.

Something from the NRA, directed widely.

Just saying.

Amen, bro.

If one of that freak's roommates had had a gun, those seven people might be alive today.

Don't take away my right to defend myself from rich, over-indulged, Hollywood brats because you can't control your kids, you nattering nabobs of nincompoopism.

Two million post cards against five million Remington Model 700’s?

Some computer/photoshop adept FReeper could make a nice bumper sticker from those two facts.

There is none because as we know it’s ONLY the guns they want and the anti-gun extremist are being activated by anti-Americans.

2.5 million post cards = a lot of postage (helping to keep the post office alive [why?!?]) and a lot of shredding time!!

Gun control advocates to deliver 2.5 million postcards to politicians..

Ummmm, Hey, Michele Richinick has it occurred to you that 2.4 million of those postcards were probably generated by a liberal elite nonprofit - by people paid to do the job? Paid by some rich liberal elite?

If you liberals really want to impress us with your great numbers... tell everyone to show up at a Chick fil A or Starbucks or something so we can see how many real people actually care about this enough to show up...

Does anyone believe that if the White House got 2.5 million pairs of 'soiled underware' (for the 'throwaway' illegals sent to our boarders by their parents) delivered to OBozo that PMSNBC would give that news any attention - at all!?!

When the nation's economy crashes it will take these idiots right along for the ride.

Let's see how many postcards they send off when the mobs show up banging on their doors for money, food or drugs.

That's really the only satisfactory take-away I get from reading and digesting these articles.

What political action do they want, smaller mags, no semi-autos, no guns that look scary, no guns that shoot bullets, no guns at all {except for the bad guys that don't follow the law}.

Jerk offs.

We’re reading down here about all the GM (Chevrolet) re-calls going on. How many were killed by defective new cars?

Uh, the Mares Co-alition to Impose What We Want On You and To Heck With What You Want. Lets see “MCIWWWOYTHWWYW”? Rolls off the tongue pretty easy and it would cover everything in one organization from 16 oz drinks to cigs to guns to speed limited autos to land use restrictions and on and on and on. Now, can we make any money off of it? Hmmmmm. Oh, dang. There’s already an organization doing that. I think it’s called the government. Catchy name huh? ;>}

More than 625,000, people signed cards. Only in Democrat circles does that add up to 2.5 million cards. :) I would love to see how many are signed Mickey Mouse.
