Urge Your Senators and Representatives to Co-Sponsor and Pass a Law to Prevent Domestic Abusers from Having Firearms
Take Action: October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Members of Congress should be asked to co-sponsor and help to pass legislation such as H.R. 3130/S. 1520 that would close a loophole in the Lautenberg Amendment. More than 1,600 women are murdered each year by a man and usually with a gun. This potentially lifesaving legislation would protect the many women facing dating abuse and stalking violence by keeping guns of out the hands of violent offenders.
