Common-sense solutions to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers and other dangerous people are sitting on desks in Congress. This includes legislation to close dangerous loopholes in domestic violence laws and to expand Brady background checks to online and gun shows sales.
It’s time to ensure that our federal laws apply to all domestic abusers, making it more difficult for these violent individuals to get guns and do more harm. Expanding background checks on commercial gun sales and closing loopholes in existing domestic violence laws will protect women and children.
Although we see gun violence all too often in this country, we can’t afford to become numb. We must take action and demand change, especially when it comes to dangerous people being able to obtain firearms and do harm. Please expand background checks and don’t allow dangerous people to legally possess firearms. This will also protect the gun owner.
