My life changed forever two years ago when my wife, Cindy Yuille, was shot and murdered at the Clackamas Town Center mall here in Oregon. It was two weeks before Christmas.
I don’t want anyone to ever have to experience this pain — which is why I’m fighting for a strong background check law in Oregon, and why I need your help.
Everytown supporters like you helped close the background check loophole at the ballot in Washington State last year. Now we want to make Oregon the first state of 2015 to follow suit, and send a message to the NRA that their years of controlling our nation’s gun laws are over.
Your donation will help fund critical advocacy efforts including advertising, organizing volunteers to meet with lawmakers, and driving calls and emails to lawmakers.
Background checks are the single most effective way to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people.
And because people like you invested time, energy, and dollars in electing gun sense champions last fall, we have a real shot at making it the law of the land here in Oregon.
But only you can help get this legislation across the finish line and put Oregon on the map as the country’s newest background check state. The next few weeks in the state legislature will be crucial in Oregon.

Our families deserve to feel safe. The more support we get from people like you, the better chance we stand at making comprehensive background checks a reality in every state.
Thank you so much for your support. It means a lot to me and my family.
