Clergy Demand An End To Gun Violence

As New York legislators prepare to pass the strictest gun control law in the nation and Vice President Joe Biden leads a task force on the White House's response to gun violence, a group of religious leaders are joining in Washington, D.C. to demand quick action on gun control.

The group, Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence, is holding a press conference Tuesday at the United Methodist Building, which is just around the corner from the White House, and delivering a letter to President Barack Obama and Congress signed by 40 national religious leaders urging action on guns.

HuffPost obtained an early copy of the letter and list of signees. Their demands: "Every person who buys a gun should pass a criminal background check," "high capacity weapons and ammunition magazines should not be available to civilians" and "gun trafficking should be made a federal crime."
