President Obama has outlined a plan to close dangerous loopholes that allow abusers easy access to weapons. A domestic violence homicide occurs almost every week in Wisconsin, most involve firearms and in too many cases the perpetrator acquired or bought the gun illegally. Congress must act before another preventable killing takes one more life. Call your Members of Congress today and tell them to work quickly to pass a gun safety bill that includes universal background checks.
- Since 2000, at least 50 people in Wisconsin were shot and killed by an abuser who was legally prohibited from possessing the murder weapon. Without universal background checks, abusers will continue to exploit loopholes and get guns to terrorize and kill victims in our communities.
- The vast majority of Americans and gun owners support background checks on all gun sales.
- The time for action is now. We can't bear to watch more and more preventable tragedies take the lives of so many.
Your quick call will help make sensible gun safety a reality.
