Thanks to Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America: A new poll finds a majority of women voters support stronger gun laws.
The poll, released by Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, found 93% of women support background checks on all gun purchases and 81% support laws to prevent abusive dating partners and convicted stalkers from accessing guns.

I recently introduced H.R. 5093, Children’s Firearm Marketing Act, which is "common sense" that we prohibit children from buying firearms. Children cannot buy beer, cigarettes, racy magazines and even "scratch-off" lottery tickets, but the law protects the National Rifle Association in allowing the marketing and sale of firearms to children.
Help us bring back "common sense" to legislation and lobby your elected representatives to support this important piece of legislation.
Today, I also joined my colleagues in the House and Senate to advocate for the passage of The Domestic Violence Gun Homicide Prevention Act. Abused women are 10 times more likely to be threatened with a gun than to defend themselves with it, and the presence of a gun in a domestic violence situation makes it five times more likely a woman will be killed.
Thank you to Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Reps. Gwen Moore (D-WI) and Donna Edwards (D-MD) for standing up with "common sense" Americans.
