Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a bipartisan coalition of more than 900 mayors, will air ads in key states during the upcoming Congressional recess demanding that political leaders take action to pass commonsense gun reforms.
The ads feature a gun owner who understands that supporting background checks goes hand in hand with defending the Second Amendment. Ads will air in media markets represented by both Democrats and Republicans where they can most influence the upcoming Senate vote.
The ads also precede the coalition’s plans for more than 100 events across the country on Thursday, March 28 as part of its National Day to Demand Action. Grassroots supporters of Mayors Against Illegal Guns will organize events, petition drives and generate an unprecedented number of calls into Senate district offices to call for their representatives to support commonsense gun laws like expanded background checks. The day is expected to be the largest gun violence advocacy event in history and is part of the largest field campaign in U.S. history to address gun violence.
