Gun Laws and Violence Against Women

Mar 1, 2013
To fully combat violence against women in America, Congress must act to strengthen our gun laws. Women in the United States are far more likely to be murdered with guns than they are in any other developed nation. More than half of women murdered with guns in the U.S. are killed by intimate partners, and more than half of mass shootings are acts of domestic or family violence. This violence is directly related to our weak gun laws -- and requiring a background check for every gun sale would reduce violence against women and save lives.
