Improve public awareness and increase appropriate use of extreme risk protection (“red flag”) orders and safe storage of firearms. Address the loss or theft of firearms during shipping. Holding the gun industry accountable Provide the public and policymakers with more information regarding federally licensed firearms dealers who are violating the law.

Accelerate and intensify implementation of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (BSCA) Improve federal support for gun violence survivors, victims and survivors’ families, first responders to gun violence, and communities affected by gun violence.
