A year ago, a minority in the Senate voted to block legislation that would have required background checks for all commercial gun sales and saved lives. But even though Congress has stalled, we’ve seen victories in states and cities all over the country, and our movement is stronger than ever. There’s a lot left to do, and your participation in the movement is crucial to passing common-sense laws all over the country.
On Wednesday, April 16th, we’re joining with Mayors Against Illegal Guns for events to remind our elected officials that we aren’t going anywhere until we get comprehensive laws on the books that will keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people.
RSVP to attend an event in your area on April 16th, and learn more about our upcoming plans for passing common-sense gun laws:
