Federal law only requires licensed gun dealers to conduct background checks. That means that millions of guns are exchanged each year without a check—most often online or at gun shows through unlicensed “private sellers.” Felons, domestic abusers, the seriously mentally ill, and other dangerous people know about this loophole, and they exploit it every day.
But under pressure from the gun lobby, Congress and most states have failed to close the deadly loopholes in the background check system.
It’s like having two lines at the airport—one with security, and one without. And criminals get to choose. That’s why criminals are flocking to unregulated online gun sales—where they can buy guns, with no background check and no questions asked.
Closing this private sale loophole is the simplest way to shut down criminals’ easy access to guns. Since the background check system was started, it has blocked more than two million sales to dangerous people, and a background check takes only a few minutes to complete.
There is no better way to reduce gun deaths in America than strengthening the background check system. Join this campaign by urging your congressman to introduce and support smarter and more efficient background checks for all gun sales, not just licensed gun dealers

Only Users that purchase calls or call for free for the campaign are eligible for consideration for the reward. You must be a U.S. citizen and 18 years of age or older. Employees, contractors, advisors and volunteers of both Amplifyd and the Campaign Organizer are ineligible to win the reward. User must have valid email associated with your User account on the Site. If you have won a reward, you will be contacted by the Campaign Organizer through email.

In the event of a tie, the caller listed in the number one spot (which can be seen from the campaign page, under the reward section) will be determined the winner.
Placing a call does not guarantee receiving a reward. The top sharers will be determined when a campaign is closed by the Campaign Orgnizer with or without being won. What determines if a campaign has been won is determined by the Campaign Organizer. There will not be pre-notification when a campaign will or is about to be closed. Campaign Organizer's have full responsibility for closing a campaign. Campaigns can be closed for any reason at any time and Campaign Organizers have no obligation to close a campaign unless it has been won. Furthermore, the User understands that there is no way of determining when a campaign will be closed in advance. Act By dates do not designate a campaign closure date and can remain open after the defined date.
