In response to the deadliest shooting in American history, our nation’s most powerful pro-gun lawmakers took to Twitter to express their deepest sympathies. Just like they did for the last mass shooting. And the one before that. And the one before that one, too.

Just eight days after Orlando, gridlock in the Senate showed that this tragedy was still not enough to move legislators to real action.

#ThoughtsAndPrayers: Comforting Tweets from Powerful Hypocrites is a collection of condolences from pro-gun politicians who have the power to do something about gun violence, but choose hollow words instead. By donating $25, you can help us turn their thoughts and prayers into something that actually makes a difference.
To be clear: we do not condemn prayer. We condemn prayer that masquerades as action. It's time for the men and women of Congress to stop tweeting about gun violence, and start doing something about it.

$25 or more gets each donor a free copy of our book, with proceeds going directly to The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence. These donations support metrics-driven and effective campaigns that work to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. In fact, since 1994 Brady Background checks have blocked 2.8 million gun sales to prohibited purchasers.

Please help us send a message to Congress that their #thoughtsandprayers are not enough. It's time to put an end to gun violence once and for all.

Donate



Donations go to the Brady Center, minus the 3% processing fee. For each donation of $25 or more, contributors will receive a copy of #ThoughtsAndPrayers the book. Please note that currently there is a limited supply of 1,000 prayer books (with a chance to print more)… we’ll do our best to keep up.
