Children are not safe in schools, places of worship are targeted, and minorities are attacked by white supremacists. Republicans refuse to take action on gun control in exchange for NRA donations while Americans die every day. Friends of Intelligent Democracy supports:
- ● Requiring universal background checks for all gun sales.
- ● Enacting “red flag” laws and preventing domestic abusers from purchasing firearms.
- ● Making the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 law.
- ● Instituting “No Fly, No Buy” policies that prevent suspected terrorists from purchasing firearms.
- ● Giving the FBI a broader scope of investigative powers to investigate suspicious individuals to help prevent mass shootings.
- ● Reinstating the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban.
- ● Starting an optional assault weapons buyback program run by DHS.
- ● Allowing the CDC to research gun violence and its causes.
