Gun Safety Legislation

Democrats and Republicans in the House of Representatives just introduced H.R. 8, a bill to update background checks in America. Moms Demand Action Founder Shannon Watts stood alongside Speaker Nancy Pelosi, former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, newly elected Congresswoman and former Everytown spokesperson Lucy McBath, and other survivors of gun violence — on the eight year mark of the day Gabrielle Giffords was shot at a constituent meeting in Tucson, Arizona — to announce this landmark legislation.

This bipartisan bill will strengthen background checks and save lives. And your Representative needs to hear from you so this life-saving legislation passes the House. Send an email to your U.S. Representative now urging them to support and pass this bill to require background checks on all gun sales.
