Seven mass shootings in seven days. This is a uniquely American problem, and the solutions are clear.
It has been 27 years since Congress passed meaningful gun safety legislation, and thousands of people have died as a result of this gross inaction. But a few weeks ago, House Democrats passed two common sense and popular gun safety bills...and now they move to the Senate.

An improved background check system might have prevented several recent mass shootings. One study found that 1-in-10 online gun purchases were made by individuals who would have been otherwise prevented by background checks due to rape, domestic violence, and other charges.
An enforced ten-day waiting period could cool dangerous impulses and give time for family and community to become aware of mass shooting plans – and help prevent them.
We must address the epidemic of bloodshed in our country, and these changes are a popular and common sense step in the right direction.
