    Every day, 34 Americans are murdered with guns. That's 48,000 Americans during the next presidential term.

    Too often, the people pulling the trigger are able to buy guns because of gaps in our broken background check system. The shooter at Virginia Tech was a prohibited purchaser under the law, but he was able to buy the guns he used to kill 32 people because his mental health record was never submitted to the national database.

    Five years after the largest mass shooting in U.S. history, new FBI data show that millions of records are still missing from the database. Every missing record is another tragedy waiting to happen.

    Coalition Members

    Mayors Against Illegal Guns is a group of over 725 mayors from big cities and small towns from across the country.
