Hello, @DLoesch. Since the Parkland shooting, common sense gun reform measures have been adopted at the local, state and federal level, while the private sector has made guns less available. And we are not done yet. (Thread) #NoRA
Federal: spending bill that went into law will make it easier for the Centers for Disease Control to investigate the causes of gun violence. #NoRA
Federal: spending bill also includes bipartisan provision that offers more money to states that comprehensively upload information to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. #NoRA
Federal: spending bill also includes more money for school for metal detectors and 1 billion over ten years for safety measures. #NoRA

Gainesville, Palm Beach Countyand Leon County, Florida Reaffirmed No Armed Teachers. #NoRA
CONNECTICUT: Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed a bill in May that bans bump stocks as well as other firearm enhancements. #NoRA
DEERFIELD ILLINOIS, passed an ordinance that not only bans assault weapons, but will penalize residents who don't forfeit or secure weapons that fall under the ban by June 13. #NoRA
ILLINOIS: Oregon closed the “boyfriend loophole,” taking guns from domestic abusers who were not spouses or domestic partners. IL house and senate passed an age increase on assault weapon ownership. Awaiting reconciliation and Governor signature. #NoRA
LINCOLN NEBRASKA: The Lincoln City Council voted unanimously on an ordinance to ban bump stocks #NoRA
BOULDER COLORADO: assault weapons ban
NJ: as of this week Red Flag law, allow medical professionals to have guns taken from people endangering themselves or others, armor-piercing ammunition ban, justifiable need for concealed carry permits, background check on all transfers, reduction in maximum magazine capacity.
NEW YORK: People convicted of domestic abuse in New York will now have to turn over all firearms, not just handguns. #NoRA
OREGON: boyfriend loophole. Oregon Gov. Kate Brown signed a bill in March to prevent convicted stalkers and domestic violence offenders from buying and keeping guns. #NoRA
RHODE ISLAND: State lawmakers passed two bills -- one banning bump stocks and "other rapid-fire gun modifications," and one creating a statewide "red flag" policy aimed at keeping guns out of the hands of people who could pose a danger to themselves and others. #NoRA
VERMONT: Vermont Governor with an A rating from NRA signed laws expanding background checks, banning bump stocks, limiting magazine capacity, and increasing the minimum age to buy firearms. 🤷🏻‍♀️ #NoRA
WASHINGTON: Bump stocks will be illegal in Washington state, starting July 2019. From that date, police will be able to seize them. #NoRA
MA: passes Red Flag Law which would allows relative or someone else close to a gun owner to get a court to issue an extreme risk protection order if they believed the person is dangerous. Awaiting reconciliation on gun trafficking amendment that limits to 15 gun purchases a yr.
DELAWARE: Red Flag Law implemented and bump stock ban. (Pending governors signature).
So in closing @DLoesch, it seems that our lawmakers are #NoRA and listening to what the majority of gun owners and non-gun owners want—stricter gun laws. We’ve only just begun to chip away at the gun lobby’s power. We. Are. Winning.
