Dinner with Gabby and Mark and Talking About Guns

this is an e-mail from the Daily Kos talking about the dinner with Gabby and Mark.......

Chloe, Americans for Responsible Solutions has been a staunch ally of ours on passing legislation for commonsense protections from gun violence. So don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity. Please click below and donate $5 today to earn a chance to have dinner with Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly.

Keep fighting,
Rachel Colyer, Daily Kos

Chloe -

Between trips to Capitol Hill, state legislatures, and Gabby's work recovering from her injury, we don't get many chances to just sit down and enjoy a relaxing meal with friends.

And that's a shame, because we have so much thank you for -- you've taken our effort to pass gun violence legislation and turned it into a grassroots movement.

We'd love to share our appreciation in person.

Contribute $5 or more today and you'll be automatically entered to join us and six supporters for a lobster dinner in Portland, Maine on Saturday, July 6th. Choose a friend or family member to bring along, and we'll take care of your airfare and lodging.


The dinner is part of a Rights and Responsibilities Tour we're kicking off that will take us from Alaska to North Carolina with a few stops between during the first week of July.

As a bonus, you can be sure that your contribution will go towards our campaign to change our gun laws, or change Congress if they refuse to act.

We'd love to see you while we're in Maine.

All the best,
Gabby and Mark

gosh, that dinner sounds great...I hope I win.....cl

too many kids are dying...let's help President Obama with this gun thing.....

too many kids are dying...let's help President Obama with this gun thing.....

maybe we can have a vote or something...we can write about it and talk about it....could we be moms against guns...the more we talk about it, write about it and do anything about it the more new and good ideas will come to the forefront to solve the situation.

I know there are many groups against guns, now, but I am thinking MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Driving has has many positive outcomes--it is easy to hear and remember.

what is your good idea.

Jeremy Irons made a doc about trash...he is a big name with a real good voice.....

sometimes that is what it takes......a famous person that everyone easily sees and hears.....to tell the thing in a simple way........something we all can easily do to solve the problem.

We do not have to do much but we can each do our own little bit.

Would that work with guns?

Maybe Jeremy could make a doc about guns in the UK.  There are not guns in the big, beautiful city of London.....

How do they survive without guns?

I would like to know that answer......could we use some of their ideas here in the US.

How many kids died from guns there last year?

How many kids died in Chicago last year from guns.

Could Piers Morgan make a doc about guns?  Life in the UK versus life in the US, with and without guns.  I would love to hear from law enforcement in the UK--how to they feel--what is their opinion of the situation.

What are your good ideas?
