The House of Representatives has passed two bills that would make commonsense improvements to our nation’s background check system.
One bill would expand criminal background checks to those seeking to buy guns online or at gun shows. The other bill would extend the waiting period for potential buyers flagged by the instant background check system so that the FBI has more time to investigate.
But those bills stalled out in the Senate due to rank partisan obstructionism by Republicans.
Are you ever going to stand up to the gun lobby and the tiny minority of Americans who think there should be no restrictions on guns whatsoever? If you actually care about saving lives and doing what the vast majority of your constituents want you to do, you have a moral and political duty to pass commonsense legislation that will improve background checks for potential gun buyers.
