Yet, more than 90 percent of Americans support background checks because they work.Since President Clinton signed the Brady background check bill into law, more than 2.4 million prohibited gun purchases have been blocked.More than one million of those attempted purchases were by felons.

and if you are reading this you, like me, may have been victimized or currently being victimized by a stalker.
Stalking is way beyond just some sociopath following you around.
America simply cannot accept as “normal” about 33,000 gun deaths every year.
The vast majority of the American people – including law abiding gun owners – believe we can and must do better.
Hillary Clinton lived in Arkansas and represented Upstate New York – she knows that gun ownership is part of the fabric of many law-abiding communities.
But as a nation we can no longer allow guns to fall into the hands of domestic abusers, other violent criminals, and the seriously mentally ill.
It is a rebuke to the families that have lost loved ones, to the communities that are plagued by gun violence, and to this nation that we love.
Clinton believes some fights are too important to give up on—and this is one of them.
Her fights are your fights and she will act on gun violence.
That is why, as president, Clinton will: It is estimated that 20 to 40 percent of all gun purchases in America are conducted with no background check because federal law fails to cover unlicensed transfers online, at gun shows, and between anonymous strangers.
