Take two minutes to urge your U.S. Representative to join Congressional Armenian Caucus Co-Chairs Dave Trott (R-NJ) and Frank Pallone (D-NJ) in cosigning a letter urging the Secretary of State to block a proposed sale of U.S. handguns to Turkey.
Congress was first alerted about the impending gun sale on the eve of the May 16th brutal beating of peaceful U.S. protesters by Turkish President Recep Erdogan's armed bodyguards. Ironically, the 1600 semi-automatic pistols, valued at $1.2 million, are targeted to be sold to the Department of Security of the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey - the very same department whose officers committed the May 16th crimes. That assault was unanimously condemned by the U.S. House of Representatives with the June 6th passage of H.Res.354 by a vote of 397-0.
