A March & Celebration to Support the President’s Bold Gun Sense Initiative
What: Delaware County United for Sensible Gun Policy is organizing a celebratory public expression of support for our President’s executive action to expand background checks on gun sales and other common sense steps to make our communities safer. We will march with balloons, colorful banners, eye-catching signs, and flags flying. We will make joyful sounds with bells, drums, and human voices! After the march, we will gather for a Celebration with cake, music, and fellowship.
Why: We need to demonstrate strong and enthusiastic public support in Delaware County for the historic action taken by the President. We need to represent the overwhelming majority of Delaware County residents who support comprehensive background checks on gun sales. We need to send a message that the people of Delaware County will be Gun Sense Voters in 2016. We need to celebrate this victory and come together as a strong, unified, growing movement.
