Nurses Against Assault Weapons
Nurses, who comprise the largest professional group in our nation's healthcare system, are diverse. We are heterosexual and LGBT; Jewish, Christian, Muslim, and all other religions; black, white, yellow, and brown; and we were born in the U.S. and are immigrants.
We work as school nurses, in emergency departments, as labor coaches, in intensive care units, in addiction centers, as diabetes counselors, and in a myriad of other roles and locations.
But, the one constant of United States' nurses is that we work very hard to promote, maintain, and restore the health of our patients and we are sick and tired of caring for innocent victims of gun violence.
WE DEMAND THAT YOU PERFORM YOUR DUTY AND PASS LEGISLATION TO STOP THE SALE OF ASSAULT WEAPONS IN OUR COUNTRY.
