Taking a stand against gun violence

Thoughts and Prayers are not enough.

We need action



The bill was first introduced in the PA Senate on 2/14/2019.


Featured Action

Tell Senator Toomey to Support S.42.

S.42 will close gaps in our system and ensure that almost every gun sale will go through a background check. This is one of the first bills taken up in this new session of Congress, and we are ready to see it move swiftly. But it can’t get stalled in the Senate. Please ask Senator Toomey to support S.42 today.
