We are people of faith, seeking to eliminate semi-automatic weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines in our state, our nation, and around the world. After the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, December 14, 2012, it is time for us to say ENOUGH! There is no excuse for civilian possession of semi-automatic weapons or high capacity ammunition clips. Our children will not be safe at school, in a mall, or in a theater until we take these weapons out of circulation!
Before you do anything else , watch the video below.
The name “Pray the devil back to hell” is drawn from a film documenting the Liberian women’s peace campaign, in which the women of Liberia put an end to a bloody civil war that was killing their children — they engaged in a continuous interfaith prayer vigil over a period of months until finally a ceasefire was negotiated and UN peacekeepers entered Liberia. They proved to the entire world that non-violent action could put an end to war. This website is not sponsored by or connected to the filmmakers of “Pray the Devil Back to Hell”, Fork Films LLC, or the Liberian activists featured in the documentary.
The war we are fighting is the war against innocent people being waged by those who use and possess semi-automatic weapons. The Sandy Hook massacre and the Clackamas Town Center Mall killings demonstrate that when well-intending citizens possess semi-automatic weapons, mass murderers will steal and use them to slaughter perfectly innocent citizens. There is no effective defense against these weapons — there is no way to secure the future of our children — other than to ban them outright, along with the high capacity ammunition magazines that turn them into weapons of mass destruction. This site is designed to provide you with resources to lobby government officials, organize prayer vigils, boycotts, demonstrations, and other non-violent protest actions to put an end to these tragedies. Please join us. Take the message to your legislature. Take the message to Congress. Take the message to the President. Take the message to the arms manufacturers who shamelessly profit from manufacturing these weapons. Take the message to our mis-guided fellow citizens who believe that possession of these weapons is legitimate and proper. We must rise up as a nation and resist this evil. NOW — not when more dozens of innocents have been murdered.
