Sign for Gun Safety
New Hampshire Senator Maggie Hassan is co-sponsoring gun safety legislation in the Senate to ban assault weapons, expand background checks, and protect domestic violence survivors. We know that bills like this will save lives, and it’s long past time for them to become law. Unfortunately, the NRA is spending $2 million to fight President Biden’s gun safety measures and his effort to name gun safety advocate David Chipman to head the ATF.

We have to do more to end the horrific acts of gun violence in this country. You can click here to sign a petition from Senator Hasson asking the Senate to pass sensible gun safety measures.
