Gun Violence Prevention
Deliver my message!
Hello, I am writing to urge you to take a stand for your constituents and all Americans by taking action to end our country's gun violence epidemic. In 2020 alone, an estimated 43,000 people were killed using guns. This epidemic is an intersectional, multifaceted issue that demands a public health approach to solving it. President Biden announced a series of executive actions to address the gun violence epidemic, including a $5 billion investment in community violence intervention programs; rules to help stop the spread of untraceable "ghost guns" and regulate stabilizing braces, which modify a gun to make it more lethal; and a plan to publish model state legislation for extreme risk protection orders (ERPO). Now it's time for Congress to do all that can be done to reduce gun violence, make our communities safer, and save lives. Left unaddressed, the gun violence epidemic will continue to fester, prematurely ending the lives of far too many. Young people cannot wait any longer. We urge you to immediately pass life-saving legislation such as universal background checks and a ban on assault weapons, and invest further in the communities most impacted by gun violence.
