Extend the protections against domestic abusers. YES on S.1539.

Minimal Script for Supporting Senators: I’m calling from [zip code] to thank Senator [___] for co-sponsoring the “Protecting Domestic Violence and Stalking Victims Act of 2017” (S.1539).

More script if you want it: Just as a person who has been convicted of domestic abuse should not be able to legally buy a firearm, stalkers should also be prevented from having guns.
