Senator Catherine Cortez Masto Supporting Background Check Expansion Act

Senator Catherine Cortez Masto joined Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut and 39 other senators in reintroducing the Background Check Expansion Act. It would expand federal background checks on all gun sales. Under current law, unlicensed or private sellers are not required to conduct a background check prior to transferring a firearm. Cortez Masto says we owe it to victims and families affected by gun violence – in Las Vegas, and across America – to pass this common sense gun safety measure.
