Ban Assault Weapons

Congress should reinstitute the federal ban on assault weapons.

Why is this important?

While it is true that people kill people, and that guns do not shoot themselves, it is also true that mass execution would not be possible without such high capacity weapons. How many people have to die before we ban those weapons?


Reasons for signing

  • The purpose of an assault weapon is to kill a lot quickly. That is not what the right to bear arms is all about. They are not for hunting or self defense. Their purpose is to kill. There is no need for a weapon of war in the hands of humanity.
  • I have just wrote an argumentative essay on this topic for my english class and these HIGH POWERED KILLING MACHINES NEED TO BANNED FROM THE PUBLIC FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Why does anyone need an assault weapon? Military yes, the general public has NO use for weapons of that caliber.
