An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Pass the Closing the Bump Stock Loophole Act of 2023 NOW!

Last week six NRA-endorsed Supreme Court justices ruled in favor of mass shooters by overturning a Trump-era ban on bump stocks. On October 1, 2017, a 64-year-old gunman used bump stocks on AR-15s to fire more than 1,000 rounds to kill 60 people and wound over 400 at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas. This bump stock mass shooting was the deadliest in modern history. I am profoundly disheartened by the Supreme Court’s ruling on bump stocks. This decision not only disregards the deadly potential of these devices but also jeopardizes the safety of our communities. Bump stocks serve no purpose other than to transform semi-automatic weapons into instruments of mass destruction. I urge Congress to pass the Closing the Bump Stock Loophole Act of 2023—the bill number is HR 396 in the House; Senator Schumer has announced he will bring the Senate version (as yet unnumbered) to the floor under Unanimous Consent this week—to permanently ban these dangerous and deadly devices. Our nation's lawmakers must prioritize the safety and security of all Americans over the interests of the gun lobby. The horrific events in Las Vegas, Uvalde, Parkland, Buffalo, El Paso, Sandy Hook, and many other communities serve as stark reminders of the urgent need for common-sense gun reforms. Thanks.
