Last week, the House of Representatives officially introduced legislation to require background checks on all gun sales – legislation that would have the biggest impact on reducing gun violence nationally, by closing a loophole that puts guns into the hands of dangerous people. 

Please take a moment today to urge your members of Congress to cosponsor this life-saving legislation – H.R. 8 (the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021) and S. 529 (the Background Check Expansion Act). 

Fighting for common-sense gun laws requires your support, so NYAGV hopes that you’ll donate today to contribute to the organization’s life-saving work. New York’s gun laws are among the strongest in the nation – but its streets are flooded with guns from states with lax firearm restrictions. Your contribution fuels the fight for federal laws that will make New York safer for all.
