Tell the Senate: Strengthen Our Nation’s Gun Laws

    Tell the Senate: Strengthen Our Nation's Gun Laws

    In a grim coincidence, the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on gun violence the very morning after the devastating shooting in Boulder, Colorado, killed 10 people.

    We know that this violence could have been prevented, along with the horrific shootings in the Atlanta area and the deaths of the estimated 43,000 people killed by gunfire in 2020.

    After years of ignoring this issue and governing based on gun lobby tropes, the Senate has the power to significantly lower rates of gun violence by:

    • Enacting universal background checks and closing the Charleston loophole
    • Increasing funding for community-based violence intervention programs
    • Enacting an extreme risk law
    • Ensuring that all domestic abusers and people who commit hate crimes are prohibited from gun possession
    • Banning assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines
    • Increasing oversight of the gun industry

    Tell your senators that they must immediately strengthen our nation's gun laws to better protect our communities.
