Ban Assault Weapons Now

Assault weapons should not be used by civilians and have no place in our cities and towns.

Why is this important?

El Paso. Las Vegas. Dallas. Orlando. Sandy Hook. Aurora. San Bernardino.

What do these horrific shootings have in common? Assault weapons.

Assault weapons were used to murder five people in Dallas, 49 people in Orlando, 26 people in Sandy Hook, 12 people in Aurora, and 14 people in San Bernardino.

Right now, these military-grade weapons are available for purchase online, at trade shows, and through gun brokers across our nation. They have become the weapon of choice for mass shooters.

Assault weapons have no place in our cities and towns. They have no place on our streets.

We need to ban all assault weapons now, while moving quickly to enact commonsense gun reform.

Reasons for signing

  • I now agree to the ban! I'm from the 60's and did my share of 'peaceful demonstrations. Carrying assault weapons' while 'protesting, is 'far from peaceful. I'm from Michigan and after seeing people carrying assault weapons 'against our own people, is far from acceptable!
  • 38,000 + school age children killed in 2018.......more now KILLED WITH ASSAULT GUNS.
  • More people die to gun violence in the United States every year than 20 years of war in Afghanistan and Iraq.
