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.

    So much has been written about the fact that elected officials have put party before the country on this issue. I believe that is how history will color your tenure. Re-election is not the basis on which this issue should be determined. The majority of Americans do not own guns and the majority of Americans want to know they will be safe. I am not safe now and neither are my children as long as assault military type weapons are on the street. I beg you to put our country before your party.

    Get assault weapons out of homes and off our streets. The USA needs massive and severe gun laws if we are to call ourselves civilized.

    If you care at all about human life, you must take action. Gun violence in America is shameful, a blight on our country. And could be improved without undue restrictions on the ‘hallowed’ second amendment, which is tragically misinterpreted. If Republicans have any honor and dignity left, at least ban assault weapons. Their only purpose is just that…assault.

    Please look to the Australian model to see how gun violence can be dramatically reduced. A true societal experiment that works.
