Petition - Ban Assault Weapons and High Capacity Magazines Now!

PETITION BACKGROUND:  Thoughts and prayers are not enough. Americans deserve a strong response from our elected leaders. 290+ gun violence prevention groups, chapters and allies have joined the Campaign Against Assault Weapons to ban #WeaponsOfWar to keep our families and communities safe. We invite you to join our campaign by signing our petition.

Dear President Donald Trump and Members of 116th Congress:

Too many Americans are being senselessly gunned down in public spaces in towns and cities across the nation.

With easy access to military-style assault weapons and high capacity magazines, too many individuals have turned our schools, malls, concerts, movie theaters, and places of worship into a war zone filled with terror, devastation and terrible loss.

Military-style semi-automatic assault weapons are designed to efficiently kill as many people as possible in the shortest amount of time available. There is absolutely no reason for assault rifles, assault pistols, and assault shotguns to be sold on the civilian market.

Congress did not take action after Aurora, Sandy Hook, Orlando, Las Vegas, Sutherland Springs, Parkland, Pittsburgh and many other devastating mass shooting incidents and the scope of death and destruction caused by a man with weapons of war is growing.

Your thoughts and prayers are not enough. We demand that you act now to stop the carnage with an effective ban on the civilian use of these weapons. NOW is the time to act!

Thank you.
