President Obama’s grassroots campaign organization is pressing supporters to switch out their Facebook profile picture with a black and white gun control sign.
Organizing for America is distributing the digital signs that read: “I am one of the 92 percent of Americans who support universal background checks.”
In an email, OFA said, “There’s another simple thing you can do right now to show the overwhelming support for universal background checks: Take this sign and put it somewhere folks will see it — in your window, on your desk, or maybe upload it as your Facebook profile picture.”
The move comes after the Senate Judiciary Committee, on a party-line vote, OK’d expanding federal background checks. Foes don’t support a universal background check, claiming that it would eventually require all Americans to register all of their weapons.
