After Texas, What Can I Do?

Now is the Time: Support This Bipartisan Effort to Expand Background Checks

Representatives Mike Thompson (D-CA) and Peter King (R-NY) introduced a bill, H.R. 4240, just last week to expand Brady background checks. In the aftermath of a mass shooting where the shooter should not have had access to guns, it is more important than ever. Below, you will find a sample script of what to say when you are connected with your member of Congress.

Two of the five deadliest mass shootings in American history occurred in the last 35 days. Three of them occurred in the last 17 months.

A new analysis by the City of Chicago and recently-released data from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are providing a unique glimpse into the sources of firearms used to commit crimes, and how variations among state laws directly impact public safety.
