Take five minutes out of your day to make a difference.

House Resolution 373 is a bill that declares June 2017 “National Gun Violence Awareness Month” and calls on the Congress to enact the following legislation from the 115th Congress to address gun violence:

(A) H.R. 1475, the Gun Trafficking Prevention Act of 2017, to limit the trafficking of firearms.

(B) H.R. 1478, the Gun Violence Research Act of 2017, to allow the Department Health and Human Services to sponsor research on gun violence.

(C) H.R. 1612, the Gun Show Loophole Closing Act of 2017, to require that background checks be conducted on individuals purchasing guns at gun shows.

(D) Legislation to ban assault weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines.

It’s time to at least talk about this issue in Congress. Let’s call them and force some debate.
