Gun Reform

Gun Reform

Let the majority speak and take action. Most Americans want stricter gun laws to reduce the amount of gun violence our country endures. Those numbers are only increasing, according to Gun Violence Archive.

 
Contact your state representatives about the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021 that was introduced by Rep. Mike Thompson of California. It was only read for the first time in the Senate yesterday, after the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Texas. On this website, there is a place to easily search for your representatives and their contact information.

This bill establishes new background check requirements for firearm transfers between private parties (i.e., unlicensed individuals)? Specifically, it prohibits a firearm transfer between private parties unless a licensed gun dealer, manufacturer, or importer first takes possession of the firearm to conduct a background check. The prohibition does not apply to certain firearm transfers or exchanges, such as a gift between spouses in good faith.”
