Today’s Action: Tell the Senate to come back to expand background checks and ban assault weapons

It has been more than two weeks since two mass shootings killed 31 innocent people and left 53 more injured. This toll does not include other deaths from gun violence across the country which didn’t make the news – every day, 100 Americans die from guns.

Tragedy of this scale deserves an answer – yet time and time again, our leaders fail to act to save the lives that WILL be lost in the next shooting, and countless others that will live on with the grief of family members gone and communities scarred.

Months ago, the House passed legislation to create universal background checks for gun purchases. Since then, it has sat in the Senate as Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) refuses to allow a vote. The legislation is ready, but the Senate is in recess until September 9…unless McConnell calls an emergency session.

What is America’s gun violence epidemic if not an emergency?

Call or email your Senators and demand they seek an emergency Senate session to pass HR 8, the Background Checks Act of 2019, AND ban assault weapons.

An improved background check system might have prevented the 2015 white supremacy-inspired mass shooting at a historic Black church in Charleston, SC…ditto to the 2017 Sutherland Springs shooting that killed 25. And a Washington State study found that 1-in-10 online gun purchases were made by individuals who would have been otherwise prevented by background checks due to rape, domestic violence, and other charges.

Universal background checks are, of course, not the final answer in gun safety. In fact, it’s likely it would not have prevented the recent El Paso and Dayton mass killings – which is why we also need a ban on assault-style weapons.

The pressure is on. Trump has tweeted that he’s looking at background check legislation, and claims McConnell is too. McConnell also didn’t rule out a ban on assault weapons in a recent interview. This is a huge step, though they’ve already begun to backtrack as public pressure relaxes…which means we can’t let it.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and call for an emergency session to pass HR 8, the Background Checks Act of 2019, PLUS a ban on assault-style weapons.

#NotOneMore death by gun violence.
