Call Your Senators: Tell them to support Background Checks

Call Your Senators: Tell them to support Background Checks

Find your US Senators’ name here

When you have your Senators’ names available, use the “Click to Call” button to be connected to the US Capitol Switchboard. Feel free to refer to the sample call script below. 

Be sure to Rev this post after your call and encourage others to do the same.

Hello, my name is [your name]. I am a constituent from [state, city, zip code]. May I speak with Senator [your senator’s name]? 

After you reach a staff member or voicemail from your senator’s office: 

Hello, my name is [your name] and I am calling as a concerned constituent. An average of 100 Americans are shot every day and 44% of American adults know someone who has been shot.The current federal background check law is not “universal” because it has loopholes for gun shows, non-licensed dealers, and does not address domestic and intimate partner violence or access to firearms for those on the terrorist watch list. 

I am concerned about background checks in this country and urge Senator [your senator’s name] to take bipartisan action. Thank you for your time.
