  1. Dear Friend,

    The tragedy in Aurora, Colorado demonstrated the devastating lethality of AR-15 type guns, and has caused many to question whether it makes sense to allow the purchase of this type of military-style assault rifles. What a lot of people don?t know is that this type of rifle is also the weapon of choice among Mexican drug cartels. In the last 5 years, over 60,000 people have lost their lives in Mexico?s wave of violence.

    Click here to WATCH this powerful video and SIGN the petition demanding that President Obama enforce the authority he has to stop this tragic warfare.

    Here is the brutal truth: 70 percent of the AR-15s and other guns used by drug lords, gangs, and kidnappers in Mexico come from the United States. Right now, President Obama has the authority to:

    1) Enforce the existing ban on the importation of military-style assault weapons.
    2) Require gun dealers to report bulk sales of military-style assault weapons.
    3) Tighten enforcement of sales in U.S. border towns.

    He has the authority, now it’s time to make him ENFORCE it!

    Brave New Foundation’s Cuéntame has partnered with WOLA (Washington Office For Latin America), and a powerful coalition of partners*, to produce a short animated video exposing how these guns get into the U.S. and are trafficked to Mexico, who profits from their sale, and empower people to tell President Obama to enforce the ban of this kind of trafficking.

    Add your signature NOW. It is the most important action you can take to demand President Obama to act now. We need thousands of signatures and it starts with YOURS.

    Together we can make an everlasting impact.

    Yours,
    Robert Greenwald, Axel Caballero and Brave New Foundation’s Cuéntame team.
