Senators Chris Murphy (D-CT) and John Cornyn (R-TX) introduced a bill in the Senate that would help ensure that federal agencies and states submit records of convicted criminals and domestic abusers into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
Show your thanks to your senators today for standing up for commonsense gun laws. Add your name to thank your Senators for supporting this bipartisan bill.
Dear Lawmaker --
Thank you for co-sponsoring S. 2135, a bill to strengthen the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) and enforce existing federal law.
This bipartisan bill is an important first step to improve submission of records into the background check system and keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers and convicted felons.
Given the horrific mass shootings we've witnessed over the past few months and the gun violence that kills more than 90 Americans each day, we must do something. Thank you for supporting this important legislation to strengthen our background check system.
