Background checks save lives. Sign the petition today and tell Congress it's time to pass common sense gun law reforms.
Tucson. Aurora. Newtown. Every day, 33 Americans are murdered with guns. It’s time for Congress to put public safety ahead of politics and pass the common-sense reforms that Americans want and need.
Require all states to submit comprehensive mental health records to the National Instant Background Checks System.
Require every gun buyer to pass a criminal background check – Under current law, background checks are only required for licensed dealers and an estimated 40% of transfers are conducted without one.
Make gun trafficking a federal crime – Gun traffickers fuel the illegal market for guns but under current law, the penalties available to crack down on them are about the same as those for trafficking in cows or livestock.
Sign the petition and tell Congress to save lives and pass these common-sense reforms now.

We will never get worthwhile background checks until the rights of the innocent are more valid than the right to privacy for the violent mentally ill.
