ACTION NEEDED
Please ask your State Representative to vote for SB 1657, the Gun Dealer Licensing Act which is currently on 3rd reading in the House. Find contact information for your state representative at http://openstates.org/find_your_legislator/.

WHY IT MATTERS:   
Licensing and regulating gun dealers would help stem the flow of illegal guns, keeping guns out of the hands of criminals.  This law would allow for inspections of gun dealers, background checks of gun dealer employees, as well as video security to prevent theft.
