Preventing and Ending Gun ViolenceThe Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is a member of Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV). We have spoken out through these coalitions after each major act of gun violence over the past year. Specifically, we hope to:
- Keep guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals and those with serious mental illness by closing gaps in the background check system, including requiring criminal background checks for all gun sales.
- Support policies that enhance law enforcement’s ability to combat the flow of illegal guns into our communities and enforce existing gun laws.
- Support new technologies to help law enforcement more effectively trace crime guns and supporting development of safety features to childproof guns.
- Urge firearms retailers to implement protocols aimed at preventing “straw purchases” and the sales of firearms to prohibited purchasers.
