Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is a new Progressive Secretary letter.

This letter supports actions by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety, Indivisible, Giffords: The Courage to Fight Gun Violence, Rock the Vote Action Fund, and others.

It asks Congress to support H.R. 8, the “Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019.”

Your letter will be sent to your House member.

Please vote YES on H.R. 8, the “Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019.”

The Brady Law currently requires licensed gun dealers to run a background check on every buyer. However, background checks are not required for sales that occur at gun shows, between private individuals, and through online sellers — accounting for about 20% of firearm sales. H.R. 8 would expand the Brady Law and close that loophole. 

Recent polls show that more than 95% of Americans support universal background checks, including 80% of gun owners. States that have enacted their own background checks have reported significant decreases in the number of law enforcement officers shot, women shot by domestic partners, and trafficked guns. 

Background checks are important and effective. Please support H.R. 8.
