H.R.8, Universal Background Check Legislation, Needs Your Help
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
Next Wednesday, February 6th, Congress is going to hold their first hearing on the universal background checks bill — and we *have to* make sure it passes.
Bill Test is HERE.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Gun Violence Prevention Task Force Chair Mike Thompson (D-CA), and former Arizona Democratic Congresswoman Gabby Giffords announced legislation to expand background checks for sales and transfers of firearms, in the video “Speaker Pelosi Announces Gun Background Check Legislation, Jan. 8, 2019“, below:
It’s way easier to understand than NRA-backed politicians want you to think: Everyone who buys a gun should be vetted first. This bill will help to close loopholes that let people who shouldn’t have deadly firearms buy guns.Congress hasn’t passed gun violence prevention legislation in a generation. Tens of thousands of Americans are killed in gun deaths each year, and they’ve still. done. nothing. Making this bill a law is what we’ve been fighting for since our movement began.Now, because of you, this bill is at the top of Congress’s agenda. When we make our voices heard, we can change the entire country to be safer for all of us. But we can’t let up now.
And hey, if you already signed this petition, thank you — be sure to share the link everywhere, to everyone, so we can let Congress know that Americans want this bill to pass.
As this bill moves through Congress, we’ll update you with more actions to take — like the best time to contact your representatives — so that Congress does what’s right.
