Sen. Klobuchar’s bill is called the Protecting Domestic Violence and Stalking Victims Act, and it works in two key ways:
- It would add stalkers to the group of people prohibited from buying guns, which already includes the severely mentally ill and violent criminals.
- It would prohibit all domestic abusers from buying guns, including dating partners — not just spouses.
As we saw this weekend, and far too many times before, women are too often the target of gun violence. Driven by misogyny and enabled by lax or non-existent gun laws, gunmen like the shooter near Santa Barbara channel their rage into shooting women.
We can do more to put an end to horrific crimes like this. We can do more to save women’s lives. We can declare #NotOneMore.
Please send an urgent message to your senators now:
