In the U.S. House, new legislation was introduced on 1/8/19 to enact universal background checks.

Up to 40 percent of gun sales in the U.S. occur without a background check. The new legislation would close loopholes that allow private sales to continue without background checks.

Enacting this law would be life-saving. About 80% of all guns acquired for crimes are bought from private parties. 

Public support for universal background checks is at least 90%! However, the NRA will fight this progress tooth-and-nail.

This bill will face an uphill battle on its way to becoming law. We have to show that the power of the people is stronger than the power of the NRA. Click here to send your message to Congress today.
