Congress: Ban Assault Weapons!
Weapons of war do not belong in streets here — or anywhere. There is no reason for assault weapons to be available to the public, and they drive injury and deaths.
We urge you to pass legislation banning assault weapons immediately.
Why is this important?
As we continue to grapple with a pandemic, we must not forget our ongoing gun violence epidemic — and we must treat it like the national security priority it is.
With so many factors fueling it, we know it’s not going to be solved overnight. BUT Congress could act NOW to mitigate the extent of mass shooting injuries and deaths. One place to start is by finally passing a federal ban on all assault weapons.
With your help, we can make sure Congress hears us loud and clear when we say weapons of war do not belong in our streets. Together, we can push Congress to do their job — that means representing AND and protecting us with legislation that will ban assault weapons from our streets.
