Everytown for Gun Safety

Tell your U.S. representative: Co-sponsor this bill to help stop gun trafficking

The federal laws that gun dealers must follow are outdated, making them dangerous and easily exploitable by firearms traffickers. Every year, tens of thousands of guns are trafficked across state lines because rogue dealers prioritize profits over public safety. These firearms end up in the hands of those who shouldn't have them in the first place, such as criminals and domestic abusers.

Our lawmakers must act now to hold the gun industry accountable by passing the Federal Firearm Licensee Act (FFLA). This bill holds gun dealers to a higher standard when it comes to selling guns to prevent them from getting into the wrong hands and to keep our communities safe. It strengthens the laws that gun dealers must follow—like background checks, recordkeeping and security, and inspection requirements—and ensures that bad actors in the industry are held accountable. The bill raises the bar for gun dealers and protects our public safety.

Make sure gun dealers are required to do their part in stopping this deadly crisis. Send a message urging your representative to co-sponsor the FFLA.

Dear Representative,

As your constituent, I'm writing to ask that you co-sponsor H.R. 1478, the Federal Firearm Licensee Act.

This is a groundbreaking gun safety bill that will help keep guns off our streets by providing law enforcement with the tools necessary to crack down on gun trafficking and the rogue gun sellers that perpetuate it.

The laws that govern gun dealers are outdated—and that's what makes them dangerous. By modernizing and strengthening the federal laws that gun dealers must follow, this legislation will ensure that gun sales are done responsibly, securely, and safely, and that the dealers who fail to do so are held accountable.

Please co-sponsor the Federal Firearm Licensee Act to make sure gun dealers are required to do their part to stop this deadly crisis.
