There’s an important, bipartisan bill in Congress that can help make our communities safer, and it needs your support.
The bill, introduced by Rep. Thompson (D-CA) and Rep. King (R-NY), would expand background checks, making it harder for criminals and the dangerously mentally ill to get their hands on guns. This would be a significant step in our mission to reduce gun violence.
Right now, people can easily buy guns online and at gun shows without a background check. Passing this legislation would close these loopholes.
This bill has 207 cosponsors as of today, but Representative Paul Ryan is not one of them. This is where we need your help. Let them know where we stand:
Sign Our Petition: Congress, pass the King-Thompson bill to expand background checks and make our communities safer.
This is a commonsense idea. Over 90% of Americans support expanding background checks, and the bill already has backing from both parties.
Congress is feeling the pressure. They took a small step in the right direction with the Fix NICS legislation, but this fight is far from over. We cannot let up. That’s why it’s so important for you to make your voice heard on this issue. Click here to help support this bill: https://action.giffords.org/page/s/pass-king-thompson?source=em180428
