Tell your U.S. senators to support S. 591 and close the Charleston loophole

The Charleston loophole is a gap in federal law that allows gun sales to proceed without a completed background check if three business days have passed. This loophole is an extreme safety risk to all people in the United States; the Mother Emanuel AME Church shooter exploited it to acquire his firearm, and thousands of guns were sold to prohibited purchasers in 2020 alone because of it.

We have a plan to end gun violence.

One at a time.

Everytown starts with you, and it starts in your town.

Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, change has been thwarted by the gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives.
