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.

    Where’s the common sense? Shaking my head at our elected officials.

    It is time to stop the insanity of allowing anyone to carry a military assault weapon. I know you take millions of dollars from the NRA to allow every weapon known to man to be sold to individuals. But aren’t the lives of Americans worth you doing what you were elected to do, which is protecting our citizens? Particularly protecting our children in our schools. Stop taking the blood money and do what is right. Your election is not worth the lives of school children!

    Please stop taking money from the NRA and starting voting for children.

    Stop sending thoughts and prayers and doing nothing to protect our children from gun violence. The only sensible, moral thing to do is to ban military grade weapons. This would not only save civilians lives, but also law enforcement lives as well. The Question is whether you can get out from under the NRA’s thumb.

    We need a ban on assault style weapons. They are agents of death. If every other civilised country can manage it, why can’t we?
