There is absolutely no reason for weapons of war—assault rifles, assault pistols, and assault shotguns—to be sold on the civilian market. Too many Americans are being senselessly gunned down in public spaces in towns and cities across the nation.
Military-style semi-automatic assault weapons are designed to efficiently kill as many people as possible in the shortest amount of time. Our schools, malls, concerts, movie theaters, stores, restaurants, nightclubs, food festivals, streets, workplaces, and places of worship are being turned into war zones filled with terror, devastation, and terrible loss.
President Trump and the US Congress, we demand you act now to stop the carnage with an effective federal ban on the civilian use of assault weapons, high capacity magazines, and bump stocks. H.R. 1296 and S. 66 Assault Weapons Ban of 2019 are ready for a hearing and a vote.
NOW is the time to act!
Please share this petition with anyone else who might be interested banning weapons of war on American streets.
