    We were outraged when a few dozen members of the Senate managed to block an up-or-down vote on expanded background checks for gun buyers.

    But then our friends at Mayors Against Illegal Guns exposed the donation records of the gun lobby to some of those senators, and it was easy to see what compelled these members of Congress to vote against the vast majority of their constituents: money.

    That’s why they created this powerful receipt to show how your senator was bought and paid for by the NRA.

    Send a free fax to your senator with this receipt from the gun lobby for his vote blocking expanded background checks for gun buyers. Use the form on the right.

    The strengthened background check bill could have saved countless lives. And over 90% of Americans, and 74% of NRA members, supported expanding background checks in this way.1

    But because the NRA opposed the plan, your senator helped block an up-or-down vote.2

    The 45 members of the Senate who voted against the vast majority of Americans on background checks have accepted over $8 million — just in contributions and independent expenditures — from the NRA and other lobbying groups that act as a front for gun manufacturers.

    Putting the NRA’s agenda above the will and needs of their constituents is wrong. Now your senator need to hear that from constituents like you.

    Using the form on the right, send a free fax to your senator's office with the gun money receipt and a personal note.
