CSGV engages in robust advocacy for commonsense gun reforms, including universal background checks. Currently, there are gaping holes in the background check system; this allows guns to fall into the wrong hands and facilitates illegal trafficking.
Expanding background checks to private and online sales is critical to preventing gun violence. CSGV will continue to lobby at the state and federal levels for universal background checks and mobilize our supporters to demand commonsense gun laws from their legislators.
In 2019, CSGV was at the forefront of the House passage of H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Acts of 2019.
