As Reform Jews, it is our duty to demand that Congress pass common sense gun legislation and save countless innocent lives, like the 11 tragically lost in Pittsburgh on October 27. Call on your legislators to take action to end the unacceptably high rates of gun violence in our country.
The SHARE Act will severely weaken an 80-year-old federal law that regulates the sale of gun silencers. Silencers disguise the sound of gunfire and make it difficult for people - including law enforcement officers - to recognize and locate an active shooter. As a matter of public safety, it is critical to protect this law and uphold the existing regulations on the sale of gun silencers.
