Tell the Senate that #Stolengunskill, and it's time to do something about it!

On Thursday, the Senate Appropriations Committee will have a chance to make our streets just a little safer. Every year, tens of thousands of guns go missing from federally-licensed gun dealers. Some are stolen, some are misplaced, and some are sold illegally. Too many of them become murder weapons. And, because there is no record of how these guns disappeared from the store, they become impossible to trace, preventing law enforcement from solving gun crimes.  Solving this problem is as simple as requiring gun dealers to do what any good business does as a matter of course – take inventory. But, since 2004 Congress has prohibited the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives from requiring all gun dealers to take inventory once a year and report any lost or stolen guns. This ridiculous rule, which effectively ties law enforcement’s hands behind their backs, is repeatedly snuck into the bill that funds the ATF. Call, Tweet and Email your Senators. Tell them: It’s time to take it off. It’s time to untie law enforcement’s hands and keep guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals.

Enter your information and help us tell the Senate Appropriations Committee to hold gun dealers responsible for keeping track of their inventory!
