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.

    As a Head of School I live daily concerned about gun violence in schools. It is simply shameful that our country has allowed school shootings to happen repeatedly and no effective action has taken place. It is now overdue time for ALL loving, caring parents and educators to rise in one voice and send the clear message to all our politicians. They must: ban ALL warfare weapons, get the NRA out of their wallets, increase the age to own a gun, develop quality services free of cost for children with mental disorders, enforce in the 50 states strong/effective background checks for those who want to purchase guns.

    The things we are asking are so reasonable. We’re not asking to take away people’s guns, but simply to act like responsible adults. If we can register cars, why not guns?

    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.

    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.
