Stop blocking gun safety legislation!
Dear Majority Leader McConnell,
Gun violence in the United States is a public health CRISIS and a huge threat to women and families!
Guns and intimate partner violence are an especially lethal combination. On average, 50 women every month are shot and killed by intimate partners and children make up 40 percent of victims in domestic violence mass shootings. It is also often left out of the conversation that communities of color are disproportionately impacted by our nation's lax gun laws -- and how this violence is compounded by a history of institutional racism, such as redlining and inequities in our criminal justice system.
Your deference to the NRA and President Trump while more and more lives are being devastated by gun violence is unacceptable. It's time to do your job as Senate majority leader and take action on gun safety legislation.
