Background Checks on Guns

Rep. Peter King is sponsoring HR 1565 in the US House of Representatives on background checks for gun purchases. Check this list to see if your member of Congress has co-sponsored.

Faiths United Again Gun Violence, of which the RA is a founding member, is asking all of its member groups to contact their representatives and either urge them to cosponsor or thank them for cosponsoring. We expect to have an additional dozen cosponsors in the next few days.
