U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is calling on fellow lawmakers to pass a bill that would keep guns out of the hands of convicted domestic abusers.

Sen. Gillibrand is urging Congress to pass the Lori Jackson Domestic Survivor Protection Act, which is a bill to close the temporary restraining order and dating violence loopholes to keep guns out of the hands of more abusers.

She is also pushing for the Domestic Violence Gun Homicide Prevention Act of 2015, which is legislation that would give states additional resources to remove firearms from domestic abusers.
