Tell Congress: We Must Keep Firearms Away from Abusers
When abusers have access to firearms, the lives of domestic violence victims and their families are in danger. Abusers use firearms to control, threaten, and murder their targets. Firearms are the primary weapon of choice in domestic violence homicides, and over half of all female homicide victims are killed by a current or former partner.
In Texas, a convicted abuser walked into a church and killed dozens of innocent victims with a firearm he legally should not have had. Despite federal laws prohibiting domestic abusers’ access to firearms, loopholes and lax enforcement allow abusers to obtain dangerous firearms with little difficulty. The Texas shooter should have been prevented from possessing his firearm. Join us in calling on Congress to pass the Fix NICS Act and oppose the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act.
