Ban Military-Style Assault Weapons

 

As you likely know by now, the Florida high school shooter, the Las Vegas shooter, the Orlando shooter, the Sandy Hook shooter and many others, used military-style assault weapon. These weapons are designed to kill as many people as possible as efficiently as possible. They should not be available to civilians.

It is well past time for the Congress the United States to act.

Please tell our Senators to ban military-style assault weapons now. Add your name to the petition today.

 

 

 

Dear Senators Burr and Tillis:

Yet again the nation faces a tragic massacre helped along by easy and inappropriate access to military-style assault weapons. This time it is 17 dead at a Parkland, Florida high school. Before that it was 58 victims in Las Vegas, 26 killed in Sutherland Springs.

Military-style semi-automatic assault weapons are designed to efficiently kill as many people as possible in the shortest amount of time available. There is absolutely no reason for assault rifles, assault pistols, and assault shotguns to be sold on the civilian market.

Congress did not act after Aurora, Sandy Hook, Orlando, Las Vegas, Southerland Springs and many other devastating mass shootings. It’s high time Congress stopped sacrificing lives and work to address this crisis before even more lives are lost.

We ask that you act now to prevent more carnage by supporting an effective ban on the civilian use of these weapons. Military-style assault weapons, high capacity magazines and bump stocks do not belong in our homes, our streets, our schools, our malls, our movie theaters, our places of worship, or in any of our other gathering places. It is well past time to act but it’s not too late to spare more Americans from death at the hands of killers using these weapons of mass destruction.

Thank you.

    America has seen enough killings due to the hearts of men who have become numb to human life. Please ban all military style assault weapons now.

    Is it so difficult to realize that the easy availability of firearms (and ESPECIALLY military-style weapons) makes it possible that any attack of bad mood (which can affect practically ANYbody) can easily result in a massacre?

    Please, Please can you please take common sense action on gun control-especially Assault Weapons! Now is the time for Real Action! I’ve seen how much the NRA donates to the GOP NC Senators. Please help stop them from making NC and our country a shooting gallery.

    Our country has a gun problem. We have too many guns! That is the cause, too many guns, and too much easy access. We should rigorously enforce background checks for ALL gun sales, transfers, and transactions. Taking money from the NRA makes you complicit in all of the gun violence that is plaguing our country.

    Please ban weapons no ordinary citizen needs for self-defense or hunting. The U.S. has more guns and gun violence than any other developed country in the world. We need to control who has access to guns. PLEASE DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR THE MAJORITY.
