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.

    Today I questioned whether I should allow my daughter to attend a concert. Yesterday it was the fair. Why should the rights of gun owners be more important that our right to have our children feel safe??

    Horrible weapons have changed the very atmosphere of what life in these United States has become—a place unrecognizable to our ancestors. Surely this is not what they had in mind when they wrote the amendmen declaring our right to form a well-rrgulated militia. Individual ownership of massive numbers of arms designed to decimate human lives is hardly “well regulated”—it is undisciplined chaos. We are killing our own citizens in massive numbers; and our do-nothing Congress silently turns away from the carnage with a shrug. You bring shame upon your country.

    Seize this opportunity to right the wrong. We need heroes, not just in the killing fields, but also in Congress.
