Support H.R.7910 - Protecting Our Kids Act

After years without action in Congress, the House passed H.R.7910, the Protecting Our Kids Act last week. Among other things the bill:

  • prohibits the sale or transfer of certain semiautomatic firearms to individuals who are under 21 years of age;

  • establishes new federal criminal offenses for gun trafficking and related conduct;

  • establishes a federal statutory framework to regulate ghost guns (i.e., guns without serial numbers);

  • establishes a framework to regulate the storage of firearms on residential premises at the federal, state, and tribal levels;

  • subjects bump stocks to regulation under federal firearms laws;

  • prohibits the import, sale, manufacture, transfer, and possession of large capacity ammunition feeding devices; and

  • requires the Department of Justice to report on the demographic data of persons who are determined to be ineligible to purchase a firearm based on a background check performed by the national instant criminal background check system.

The bill now moves to the Senate. It's going to take ALL of us to make sure the bill doesn't die there. And come November, we need to hold EVERY legislator who blocks this bill accountable. 

TAKE ACTION: Call Senator Pat Toomey

Call Senator Toomey and tell the staffer who answers that you expect Senator Toomey to sponsor the bill and to vote YES when it comes to the floor. It is fine to leave a message if you get an answering machine. Make sure to leave your name and address so they know you are a constituent. And it is great to make this a DAILY action.

CALL SENATOR TOOMEY - (412) 803-3501
