It's a woman's rights issue.

It's not just a mass shooting issue, a gun control issue or a gun rights issue, it's also a woman's rights issue.

60% if mass shooters have a history of domestic abuse.

About 5 million women are victims of domestic abuse every year.

A woman is 500% more likely to die if an abuser has access to a gun.

On average 57 women die each month by a gun in a domestic partner's hands.

Not all states report domestic violence convictions to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

Guns make EVERYTHING better! Shall we discuss road rage next?
