Oppose HR 8 - Forces Background Checks on All Firearm Sales
Author: Rep. Thompson (D-CA-5)
Summary: HR 8 would mandate that background checks be completed for ALL firearm purchases. It would allow some limited exemptions, such as borrowing a gun for hunting, but NOT for the constitutionally protected right to self-defense.
Expanding background checks will not deter crime. But it WILL infringe on your fundamental rights. It is for these and other reasons that we must ask you to demand Congress vote NO on HR 8. Please do so by contacting the House and Senate leadership using the below Take Action tools.
