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.

    There is no civilian need for these types of weapons. They are not appropriate for self defense, hunting or sporting. They are simply weapons of mass destruction which is how they’ve been used on innocent citizens. Please ban them now, once & for all.

    I am a pediatrician and know well the impact of these shootings on the victims, their families, their communities and the mental health of the nation. Please do something.

    As a pediatrician and a father, it breaks my heart to know that weapons that have no place in our non-military sector contribute such destruction of our future. If we focused more of our resource supporting those with mental health disorders and restricting the production and circulation of these weapons, and less of our resources supporting “the rights” to have these weapons, perhaps we could be supporting the rights of our children to safely attend school and grow up to become what they dream of.

    This is a public health crisis that must be addressed. It is unconscionable to place politics and money above the lives of American citizens.
