Demand universal background checks now!

In the United States of America, it is far too easy to purchase a firearm: One in five people who buy a gun don’t even have to pass a background check. But the House of Representatives just introduced a bill to mandate universal background checks on nearly ALL gun sales, and it is crucial we all do our part to move this lifesaving legislation forward.

This legislation shouldn’t be controversial – 97% of Americans support background checks for all gun sales. Universal background checks would keep deadly weapons out of dangerous hands, address our nation’s gun epidemic, and keep our communities and families safer from gun violence.

Because this issue is so important, our coalition is demanding Congress take action and pass universal background checks – and we’re asking 100,000 gun safety champions like you to speak out immediately in support of it.

Add your name to tell Congress: We need universal background checks now to save lives from gun violence!
