From the Office of Democratic Representative Litzy Gonzalez

Today I have introduced the Universal Background Checks Act into the House Hopper, which would require a background check on all firearm purchases. Every day, the epidemic of gun violence shatters lives in countless communities across the country. Background checks are simple, easy, and they save lives by preventing firearms from getting into the hands of the wrong people.

This is a common sense safety measure that when polled has shown is supported by 84% of Americans, including 77% of Republicans. After every tragic shooting, we say "enough is enough" but nothing ever changes. We owe it to our communities to actually make a change for once.

President Biden ran on the message of common sense gun control measures. The country overwhelmingly support such measures. It's time Congress stop sitting on their hands, making excuses, and pass legislation like the Universal Background Checks Act.
