Norma --

One year ago today, my sister Zina was murdered by her abusive estranged husband. The restraining order she had against him should have prevented him from getting a gun, but he was able to buy one online without a background check.

Please watch this short message I recorded and add your name to my sign-on letter to Congress and remind them that they can save women's lives if they take action.
I'm going back to Washington, DC to share my sister's story with leaders in Congress.

I'll tell them that they can close the loopholes in our laws that allow dangerous people, like my sister's killer, to get guns -- and that simple, common-sense solutions would prevent others from experiencing this kind of tragedy.

Together, we can make sure that more women's stories don't end the way that Zina's did. And one of the most important things you can do to make sure that Congress acts is to share the stories of survivors and women like my sister.

Watch this message today, and add your name to the letter to Congress:

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Help me do this for Zina and for all the women whose lives are at risk when dangerous people get their hands on guns.

Thank you for watching,

Elvin Daniel
