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.

    Banning assault weapons and magazines, requiring strict background checks, requiring a license that follows the weapon doe not have anything to do with the 2nd amendment. These are simply common sense regulations the help keep weapon about of the wrong hands. Guns should have similar regulation a as driving a car.

    No civilian needs an assault rifle. If you believe children have a right to life, then you will stop letting the NRA run this country. Children’s lives are more important—all lives are more important than than any civilian’s right to an assault rifle meant to mow people down. I am fed up.

    Does this make sense to you?


    Pro life is also Pro Gun.


    Blaming mental health for shootings and then cutting it from health care act.


    Pro middle class and tax cuts for corporations


    Your policies and stands are not logical, consistent or conscientious. Don’t think people are fools and will not figure out…. I am a republican but you are making it hard for me to defend you to in front of my friends. Do you have answer for this contradictions? I don’t.
