CEOs Push Congress to Pass Gun Control Legislation

In the push for gun control in Congress, now business leaders are demanding lawmakers to act.

They are pushing Congress to pass what they call “common sense laws.”

CEOs from Airbnb, Uber, Twitter, and Levi Strauss are among the 145 executives who signed a letter to the Senate demanding the legislation.

They are calling for background checks and red flag laws.

Those laws allow courts to temporarily prevent someone believed to be in crisis from accessing a gun.

The common sense laws have already passed the House, but have not been voted on by the Senate.

President Trump has not committed to signing the measures if the Senate passes them.
