Ban Military-Style Assault Weapons and Large Capacity Magazines

Military-style assault weapons are weapons of war and have no place in our society. You must act now to ban these weapons along with high capacity magazines.

Why is this important?

UPDATE: August 9, 2019

BACKGROUND

Assault weapons and high capacity magazines are easily available for civilians to aquire in the U.S. Weapons of war have no place in our society. In addition, these military-style weapons and high capacity magazines are the choice of domestic terrorists and other shooters in the vast majority of mass shootings that have taken place across our country.

We do not want or need politicians' thoughts and prayers - we want action now! Military-style assault weapons and large capacity magazines have no place in civilian society and are only designed to kill and injure large numbers of people in a short period of time.

We cannot allow the daily carnage in our country to be the new normal.

Tell the President and Congress to act now to ban military-style assault weapons and large capacity magazines. Please sign and share.

As we always do, your signatures will be delivered electronically and in person.

Thank you.
