Dear Senator,

As your constituent, I urge you to support the inclusion of life-saving provisions in the Violence Against Women Act to keeps guns away from abusive dating partners. We can take an important step towards reducing gun violence in America by ensuring that gun safety provisions that protect women are part of the Senate Violence Against Women Act reauthorization bill–like the bipartisan House reauthorization bill that passed earlier this year. I ask you to support provisions to keep guns away from abusive dating partners and to alert local law enforcement when domestic abusers illegally attempt to buy guns.

When a gun is present in a domestic violence situation, it's five times more likely that the woman will be killed by her abusive partner.
