1) Shocking no one, the Sutherland Springs shooter was a domestic abuser. Congress and state lawmakers make it easy for abusers to get guns.
2) The @NRA actually fights in statehouses and courts to let domestic abusers stay armed: m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_57…
3) Federal law only prevents spouses, ex-spouses and co-parents convicted of abuse from having guns. Not stalkers or dating partners.
4) In addition, individual state laws then have to be passed to force abusers to relinquish the guns they already have.
5) And thanks to the loophole Congress refuses to close, domestic abusers can easily evade background checks through private gun sales.
6) Here’s a great summary from @FullFrontalSamB about the lax laws made by male lawmakers that endanger women:
7) More than 50 American women are shot and killed every month by current or former intimate partners: every.tw/2xJsx1y
8) @MomsDemand has passed laws in 24 states in the past five years that disarm domestic abusers: momsdemandaction.org/in-the-news/af…
9) The majority of mass shootings in US involve domestic abuse and the majority of the victims are women. Many mass shooters are abusers.
10) Join us: Text ACT to 64433. Get involved before it’s your loved one; your community that’s impacted by gun violence. #RejectTheNRA
