TAKE ACTION AND SIGN BELOW!
President Obama has the power to help stop gun smugglers. We’re asking him to: 
  1. Enforce the existing ban on the importation of military-style assault weapons (because many of them are later illegally smuggled into Mexico);
  2. Require gun dealers to report to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) the sale of multiple assault rifles to the same person over a period of five days;
  3. Strengthen legal enforcement in regions of the U.S. that supply the bulk of the contraband weapons smuggled into Mexico.
