Gun Control Lobbying

Resolution Adopted by the CCAR

Gun Control Lobbying

Adopted by the CCAR at the 98th Annual Convention of

the Central Conference of American Rabbis


WHEREAS strict gun control laws endeavor to eliminate the senseless slaughter of humans

in our land by those who easily obtain unlicensed hand guns, and

WHEREAS the Central Conference of American Rabbis is on record as supporting those

laws, and

WHEREAS the CCAR stands firm in its opposition to the National Rifle Association for

its dedicated pursuit of unlicensed gun ownership, and

WHEREAS published figures indicate that the NRA has made substantial contributions

to the campaigns of individual U.S. Senators and members of the House of Representatives,


WHEREAS there is a correlation between the NRA contributions and those legislators’

voting records,

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the CCAR call upon members of the U.S. Congress to eschew

the support of the NRA and to vote their support of stringent gun-control legislation.
