Why Did You Sign?

We asked our supporters to explain why they signed the pledge to #PoliticizeMyDeath. Here's what they said ...

Show the pictures of my body, put them on the news, drive them around Congress and the NRA on the side of a truck. Do anything you have to to make me the last one. (Washington, DC)


I am a teacher, and I am scared for my children. We shouldn't teach them fear, to huddle in closets. We should work to make our country and our schools safe for them- and that doesn't mean adding more guns. (Wichita Falls, TX)

"Vote the bastards out of office." (Charlotte, NC)

"I'd rather not die from gun violence, but it seems like there's a decent chance it could happen in this America. So, if I die by gun fire, please use me to end this insanity." (Isle of Palms, SC)


"I sign this because I am sick and tired of being sick and tired of innocent people dying over senseless acts of violence." (New York City)


"If I die from a mass shooting, YOU MUST politicize my death. Do not have a moment of silence, have a moment of political outrage." (Denver)


"If I die from gun violence, I want anyone and everyone to step over my still-warm body and scream from the rooftops about implementing sensible gun laws. Stop the insanity." (Chicago)


"Nothing will change until we, who stand against gun violence, become the majority and until fear does not dictate a means of violent action." (Pittsburgh)


"I literally want my OBIT to read 'Murdered by Paul Ryan, Ted Cruz, Orin Hatch, Mike Pence, JOhn Cornyn, John McCain, Mike Crapo, John Thune, Roy Blunt, Mike Lee, Cory Gardner, John Barrasso Marco Rubio, Tom Cotton, Joni Ernst, Chuck Grassley, Lindsey Graham, Rand Paul, Johnny Isakson, Richard Shelby, Luther Strange, Lisa Murkowski, Dan Sullivan, Jeff Flake, John Boozman, David Perdue, Jim Risch, Todd Young, Pat Roberts, Jerry Moran, Bill Cassidy, John Kennedy, Susan Collins, Thad Cochran, Roger Wicker, Steve Daines, Deb Fischer, Ben Sasse, Dean Heller, Richard Burr, Thom Tillis, John Hoeven, Rob Portman, Jim Inhofe, James Lankford, Pat Toomey, Tim Scott, Mike Rounds, Mike Rounds, Lamar Alexander, Bob Corker, Shelley Moore Capito, Ron Johnson, Mike Enzi.'"
