Keep Guns Out of Criminals’ Hands

Background checks can keep guns away from dangerous people, but we need your help to Finish the Job.

Since the Brady law went into effect on February 28, 1994, background checks have stopped more than 3 million gun sales to prohibited purchasers including convicted felons, domestic abusers, fugitives from justice, and other dangerous individuals.

Millions of guns are sold every year in “no questions asked” transactions. Experts estimate that 1 out of 5 guns now sold in America are done so without a Brady background check.

It’s time for Congress to finish the job and expand Brady background checks to stop criminals and other dangerous people from getting guns in America.

Take Action Now

If you agree with the 93 percent of Americans who think it’s crazy that so many gun sales are exempted from background checks, then we need your help. Tell Congress to Finish The Job, and expand the Brady background checks to stop criminals and other dangerous people from getting guns in America.
