The NRA Resource

Using the NRA as a resource

NRA finances fuel great research tracking active gun legislation. Their legal teams monitor every gun bill in every state.

I take the NRA legislative alerts sent to their members and reverse the way they want legislators to vote. If they urge legislators to vote “no” on universal background checks, my alerts say for legislators to vote “yes” on the bill.

We’re beating the NRA by passing more laws

In 2020, new gun regulation laws bettered new NRA laws by 34-13. The beat us early on, but as the year progressed, we trounced them.

Check back periodically to see if we’re winning this year?

No money is asked

I do this project so we can enjoy America without the threat of constant gun violence. I don’t do it to enrich myself. So I don’t ask for money.

Helping you advocating for gun control bills

I alert gun control voters of important legislative votes this week on gun bills. The data comes from the NRA website and gun violence prevention groups in every state. If subscribed, you receive your state alerts to call your own state legislators. Together we can improve gun safety. Here are the simple steps:

  1. Sign up to get alerts for your state.
  2. Receive timely alerts for gun bill votes this week in your state.
  3. Call or email your legislators urging them to vote for gun violence prevention.
  4. Feel you’ve helped build a safer community.
