How background checks can help fix America's broken gun laws

The Center for American Progress is out today with a new infographic explaining how our country's gun laws are broken. Too often dangerous people, even those legally barred from owning guns, can still purchase firearms without background checks to stop them. That includes convicted felons, domestic abusers, and the seriously mentally ill.
Check out the full infographic by clicking image above.
We need to do more to keep weapons out of the hands of dangerous people—and expanding background checks for gun sales would do that.
Don't let Congress get away with doing nothing. Say you'll help keep common-sense gun violence prevention measures at the top of Congress's agenda.
