A message from the Democratic Party:
Last week 84 people in Nice, France, were tragically killed by a truck. Early reports speculated that the driver may have been born in another country, but the birthplace of the driver, his motives and his religion don't matter.
Trucks are responsible for over 12,000 deaths per year in the U.S. And yet anyone can buy or rent a truck with absolutely no background check. This is outrageous. It's also outrageous that people can actually sell trucks privately--again, with no background check.
We've known about this problem--and warned about it--for years. But each time a Democrat in congress introduces a bill to close these loopholes, the Republicans in congress--on the orders of the powerful National Truck-makers' Lobby--have killed the bill without even letting it have a floor vote.
Thus we hope you'll agree that if we want to prevent a tragedy such as the one in Nice from killing innocent American children--like yours--we need to ban trucks.
Trucks are deadly weapons. The Republicans say people should have the right to buy or rent any vehicle, but this is obviously absurd. No one needs to own a truck. We need to ban these terrible killing devices in order to protect our innocent children. So please, won't you send Hillary $25, $50 or whatever you can afford? We hope to raise $500,000 to publicize the carnage caused by these awful devices every year.
Please make your check payable to The Clinton Foundation. Thanks!
