Praise! 

Thank Bob Ferguson, for legally challenging the internet release of 3-D printed handgun plans

Script: Thank you for challenging the Trump administration authorization to publish plans that allow 3-D printers to produce handguns.  It is critical to regulate handguns, which would be impossible for these plastic handguns.

This Week’s Top 3 Actions:

Action #2- Submit a public comment to oppose Trump’s car emissions & fuel economy rollback:

Visit the EPA website: HERE and click the “Comment Now!” button

Sample script (edit as you like): Transportation is the fourth largest carbon polluting source in the country.  With wildfires raging, and linked to human induced climate change, a really bad idea is to reduce US automobile emission standards.  With the entire world, except the US, signing the Paris Climate Agreement, the world will demand more fuel-efficient transportation.  Our US automobile industry will fail in the global market if they cannot produce fuel efficient products.  For both economic and climate reasons, relaxing automobile emission standards is a bad idea.

Action #3 – Ask your Senators to co-sponsor Bernie Sanders’ No Money Bail Act:

If you’re poor and you’re accused of a crime, you are likely to go to jail, for a considerable period of time, unless you can afford the financial cost of bail.  Mere accusation, not guilt, incarcerate poor people who then risk loss of jobs, homes and children. 

Script: Our system of monetary bail creates undue hardship for those who are unable to afford bail, leading to financial ruin for Americans who are merely accused of a crime.  Please co-sponsor S 3271, the No Money Bail Act.
