Help end gun violence for good

Right now, someone who has been convicted of a hate crime — like drawing a swastika on a synagogue — can legally buy a firearm in 47 states in America and the District of Columbia. Hate incidents are often precursors to more radical, violent crimes, and adding firearms to the mix only makes it more dangerous. The Disarm Hate Act (S 1324/HR 2841), introduced by Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) and Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), would prevent individuals convicted of hate crime misdemeanors from buying firearms.
