Senate Vote Today


The U.S. Senate will vote today on two important gun violence prevention laws.

The first, proposed by Sen. Feinstein of California, attempts to close the “terror gap” by prohibiting known and suspected terrorist from purchasing a gun. The second, proposed by Sen. Murphy of Connecticut, would require background checks for all gun sales and strengthen the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

These are common sense gun laws which will restrict guns from falling into the wrong hands.

Please join us today in calling both of our Senators and asking them to vote ‘yes’ to these amendments.

Senator Warren: (202) 224-4543

Senator Markey: (202) 224-2742

To reach a non-Massachusetts Senator: Call (202) 224-3121 for the Capital switchboard operator, who will connect you with whichever Senate office you request.

If you’d like some help on the call, here’s a script:

Hello, my name is __________, and I’m calling today from __(city)__ to ask you to vote YES on the Feinstein amendment to close the terror gap, and YES on the Murphy amendment that will strengthen the background check system. Thank you very much.

I urge the senator to support these bills that strengthen our gun laws and help keep guns out of the wrong hands.
