Huge news: H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act, has been introduced in the U.S. House. This is long overdue. Nearly 40,000 people died from gun violence in 2017—the highest number in decades.
Requiring background checks for every gun sale is a critical step in reducing gun violence. We need your help to make sure it becomes law.
If Congress is serious about making our country safer, they must close the legal loopholes that make it too easy for dangerous people to get their hands on a gun. Republicans, Democrats—even gun owners—agree we must close these dangerous loopholes and require a background check for every gun sale, including those sold online and at gun shows.
We need YOU to help us pass this lifesaving legislation by CALLING CONGRESS NOW and telling them to support the Bipartisan Background Checks Act, a bill that will close dangerous loopholes in our federal laws and require a background check for every gun sale.
