Please join efforts with Moms Demand Action to support H.3610, An Act temporarily preventing firearm access for extremely dangerous or suicidal individuals. This bill would further regulate the conditions for at risk persons to carry firearms.

The accompanying bill (H.3081 – An Act Establishing Extreme Risk Protective Orders or ERPO) has been sent to study, making this bill all the more urgent. We still have a chance to move H.3610 forward in this legislative session before April 15, 2018!

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Call/write your state reps and urge them that H.3610 should come to the floor for a vote. Legislators must pressure their colleagues in the committee to move this bill forward.
