Background Check Expansion
Senator Christopher Murphy (D-CT) has introduced the Background Check Expansion Act, S. 2009. This bill would make background checks nearly universal, closing the gun-show loophole and mandating that all gun sales, including private sales, go through the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
1. Contact your Senators and ask them to support S. 2009, the Background Check Expansion Act.
2. If one of your Senators is already a co-sponsor of the Act, thank them.
3. The bill has been referred to the Judiciary Committee. If your Senator sits on this committee, ask them to send the bill to the Senate for a vote.
