Severely Punish Dangerous Gun Misuse

gun-by-vlad-butsky

Target: Steve Crisafulli, Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives

Goal: Provide harsher punishments for the misuse of guns.

Gun shots were fired on the University of Florida campus right near a college dorm following a drunken bar fight. An argument broke out as people were leaving a nearby bar. The argument then turned into gunfire when 25-year-old Clay Allen Shanks is allegedly punched someone in the jaw, pulled a gun from his girlfriend Sara Elizabeth Gooden’s purse and fired into the ground of the Murphree Hall dormitory parking lot.

Luckily no one was injured in this shooting, but it could have been added to the long list of fatal shootings occurring on college campuses in recent years. Obviously the current system isn’t working and people are not afraid of acting recklessly with a deadly weapon. We cannot allow this kind of violence to continue, especially at places like college campuses where students should feel safe.

People like Clay Allen Shanks and his girlfriend need to face severe consequences for their uncalled for actions, and we need to let people know that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated. Urge officials to enact legislation that would increase punishments for misusing guns, especially in places like college campuses.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Speaker Steve Crisafulli,

Gun shots were fired on the University of Florida campus right near a college dorm when an argument broke out as people were leaving a nearby bar.

We cannot allow this kind of violence to continue, especially at places like college campuses where students should feel safe.

People like Clay Allen Shanks and his girlfriend need to face severe consequences for their uncalled for actions, and we need to let people know that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated. I urge you to enact legislation that would increase punishments for misusing guns, especially in places like college campuses.

Sincerely,
