Take Action for House Bill H.R.8 

Call your Federal Representative to support H.R 8, a bill for Universal Background Checks on all guns sales.

“Thirty-one states do not currently require background checks for all gun sales.  If passed, this law would save countless lives by preventing dangerous individuals from accessing firearms without inconveniencing law-abiding gun owners. It would prevent those who are a proven risk to themselves and others, like individuals convicted of violent felonies and domestic abusers from purchasing firearms without detection. Background checks are supported by 97% of Americans including the majority of gun owners and I applaud the new Congress for prioritizing this life-saving and proven gun safety initiative.” John Rosenthal, SHV.

Take Action for Senate Bill S.184

Call your Federal Senator to support S.184, a bill to authorize the appropriation of funds to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for conducting or supporting research on firearms safety or gun violence prevention.

Research and data are essential to bring forth the most effective policies and preventative measures to reduce gun violence in our country. In 1995, the NRA lobbied Congress to stop funding research on gun control by the CDC. The following year, Congress passed the Dickey Amendment that cut funding and ended the CDC’s ability to study any gun violence as a public health issue. We now lack 23 years of data that could help our country to prevent gun violence and save nearly 40,000 lives every year.
