The Charleston church shooting: four years later

Four years ago today, a white supremacist entered the historically black Emanuel AME Church in Charleston and murdered nine congregants in a racist and targeted attack.

This marks the second time in less than a week that we’ve acknowledged the anniversary of a mass shooting. Meanwhile, 96 Americans die every single day from gun violence. That adds up to an average of 35,000 people a year.

When will it be enough for Senate Republican leaders to act?

It’s been over 100 days since House Democrats passed two key bills to reduce gun violence. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refuses to allow a single vote on legislation to address gun violence.

One of those bills, H.R. 1112, is bipartisan legislation that would address the dangerous loophole that allowed the Charleston shooter to obtain his gun. The “Charleston Loophole” enables people prohibited from owning guns to purchase them before a background check is completed. For more information, check out this explainer.

Enough is enough. Call your senators today, and urge them to demand a vote on H.R. 1112: 202-224-3121
