Pass the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act. Save Lives. Protect Our Kids.

Gun violence is a public health epidemic and no community is immune. The Senate has passed a bipartisan bill to finally provide solutions to reduce gun violence in our country and keep young people safe.

The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act is the official legislation that senators drafted, with the help of Sandy Hook Promise. This bill goes further than anything the Senate has put forward before. From federal funding for extreme risk protection laws to more mental health support, this bill addresses gun violence for the first time in nearly 30 years.

We must demand our leaders vote YES on unprecedented solutions to make our schools, homes, and communities safer. This can be done while upholding second amendment rights. Despite this bipartisan solution, opposition groups are making their voices heard loud and clear. We must act now!
