Our U.S. representatives will soon vote on H.R. 8 and H.R. 1446, two life-saving gun safety bills.
Our gun violence crisis has gotten worse since the COVID pandemic began, and skyrocketing gun sales have exacerbated loopholes that enable guns to fall into the wrong hands. We urgently need to pass these two bills:
- H.R. 8 requires background checks on all gun sales.
- H.R. 1446 addresses the Charleston loophole, a gap in federal law that allows gun sales to proceed without a completed background check if three business days have passed. Due to the loophole, thousands of guns were sold to prohibited purchasers in 2020 alone, and the Mother Emanuel AME Church shooter exploited it to acquire his firearm in 2015.
Our U.S. representatives must act immediately to address this crisis.
