Gun violence isn’t getting any better in America. If you feel severe anxiety just stepping outside trust me, you’re not alone.
I hope through this campaign and meaningful gun legislation we can inch forward towards a safer America.
Now more than ever we need to put aside party differences and think about public safety. We need to think about the safety of our children, our communities and our friends and family.
About the Bipartisan Background Check Act
Good luck Asheli!
The Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 was passed by the House of Representatives on February 27th, 2019.
The bill established new background check requirements for the purchase of guns, specifically addressing the "gun show" loophole that allows transfers of firearms without a background check.
While the bill passed the House, it faces an uphill battle in the Senate and could face a Presidential Veto if it passes the Senate.
In the 2018 mid-term elections, Gun Control groups donated more money to political candidates than Gun Rights groups. However, in the same year, Gun Rights groups outspent Gun Control groups nearly 6 to 1 lobbying Congress.
Even though 84% to 94% of people in the United States favor background checks for people trying to purchase firearms, background checks are defeated by the lobbyists working for the Gun Rights groups.
In order for the people to have a stronger voice, there need to be more lobbyists talking to members of Congress about background checks for purchasing firearms.
