Urge Your Senators to Help Save Women’s Lives

 

Every month, 46 women are shot and killed in the U.S. by a current or former boyfriend or spouse.

 

Here’s the reality: more than half of the women killed with guns in the U.S. are murdered by their partners. Every month, 46 women are shot and killed in the U.S. by a current or former boyfriend or spouse.

 

Gun violence in America is a domestic violence problem. We researched mass shootings between January 2009 and January 2013 and found that 57 percent of mass shootings involved the murder of a partner or other close family member.

 

But we know that common-sense gun laws will protect domestic violence victims and save lives. In states that require background checks, 38 percent fewer women are shot to death by intimate partners.

 

That’s why we’re pushing Congress and state legislatures to close the loopholes that make it easy for domestic abusers to get guns without a background check—common-sense changes that the gun lobby refuses to support. If abusers can simply go online and buy a gun, how can their partners ever be safe from harm?

 

We’re also working to prohibit stalkers from buying guns—and to make sure that convicted abusers don’t get to keep the guns they already own.

 

 

Demand Action – Zina’s Story

 

Zina was shot and killed by her abusive husband with a gun he should have been blocked from buying.

“We need to close loopholes in federal law that permit domestic abusers and stalkers to get their hands on guns.”

 

We urgently need to close loopholes in federal law that permit domestic abusers and stalkers to get their hands on guns.

 

Women are the target of far too many shootings in America. In fact, the majority of mass shootings in this country are domestic violence incidents. But there’s now important legislation in the Senate that will strengthen our nation’s domestic violence laws and help save women’s lives.

 

Sen. Klobuchar’s bill is called the Protecting Domestic Violence and Stalking Victims Act, and it works in two key ways:

 

  1. It would add stalkers to the group of people prohibited from buying guns, which already includes the severely mentally ill and violent criminals.

 

  1. It would prohibit all domestic abusers from buying guns, including dating partners — not just spouses.

 

Sign this petition to urge your senator to co-sponsor S. 1290.

 

Senate: keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers and stalkers. Please co-sponsor S. 1290.

 

I’m writing as a constituent to urge you to co-sponsor S. 1290, Sen. Amy Klobuchar‘s bill that would close loopholes in federal law that permit domestic abusers and stalkers to get their hands on guns.

 

This is an urgently needed piece of legislation that will save women’s lives. Most mass shootings in this country are in fact domestic violence incidents.

 

We need to do more to stop gun violence against women. I hope I can count on your support for this bill.

 

Signed,

 

Everytown for Gun Safety
