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.

    You know a majority of Americans do not want assault type rifles in our public domain. These type guns are true killing machines. Neither is it wanted to take away citizens sporting or handguns. These are not self conflicting policies as the NRA would argue. Please do the right thing. Legislate to ban these weapons.

    Gun reform is the only way we will change the frequency of school massacres!

    Let’s please adopt a sane approach to gun ownership that somewhat resembles the rest of the 1st world which suffers far fewer gun fatalities amongst citizens. Let’s take basic, logical steps towards curbing the proliferation of guns that enriches politicians while devastating communities. The prevalence of gun violence is a form of American exceptionalism we should aim to rectify as quickly as possible.

    As a teacher, this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. I will risk my life for my students but I will not be armed in my classroom. It breaks my heart every time we have to have a lockdown drill much less every time a child loses their life in a place where they should be safe just so someone can own a gun no one needs to own (outside of the military). Please bring some sense to this madness for our children. Debbie Carden
