Senators Must Use All Available Tools To Advance Background Check BillFebruary 27, 2019
Background check bill is just the start toward a future with fewer guns
WASHINGTON — Guns Down America, a bolder, broader movement calling for dramatically fewer guns in America, released the following statement regarding the passage of H.R. 8, a new background check bill.
“Our Senate leaders marched alongside us last year and vowed to take on the National Rifle Association. This is their first big test. Every single senator who supports background checks must immediately go to the body of the Senate and begin discussing the bold policies we need to build a future with fewer guns — and not stop until there is a vote on the first step toward that goal, universal background checks,” said Igor Volsky, Executive Director of Guns Down America.
Founded after the Pulse Nightclub massacre in Orlando, Guns Down America is a bolder, broader movement calling for dramatically fewer guns in America, and for making them dramatically harder to get.
