Update: Even though this measure was defeated in the Senate, it could be brought up for a vote again later this year. That's why it's so important you contact your Senators and let them know where you stand.
After months of GOP obstruction, there has been a breakthrough in negotiations on gun control -- and the Senate just voted to proceed with debate on gun control after defeating the Republican Filibuster.
But this is just the beginning, and there are still more critical votes in the next few days to get this bill passed.
This is a big deal and your urgent action is needed! Contact your Senator now and demand background checks for all gun sales.
Requiring background checks on all firearms purchases is a common sense solution to the thousands that are senselessly killed by gun violence every year. But right now only 6 states require background checks at gun shows!
Tell your Senator to support background checks now!
