This has to stop.

We have to fight this. Democratic lawmakers are pushing for more stringent screenings on the sale of weapons to people with criminal records, mental illnesses and past abusive behavior. Approximately 2 in 3 Americans surveyed this year said that they SUPPORT greater restrictions on gun ownership, expanding background checks and other measures.

In the Build Back Better bill, Biden has included an infusion of funding for Community Violence Intervention Programs, based on his long-standing work with groups across the country to end gun violence. Republicans are hoping to cut those funds, and stop the BBB bill altogether.

The House passed BBB, but now it’s going to the Senate where Republicans are surely going to vote it down, despite all the lives it will SAVE. Reach out to your legislators and demand they act. We have to do better than this. Please reach out and fight for change.
