As you likely know by now, the Florida high school shooter, the Las Vegas shooter, the Orlando shooter, the Sandy Hook shooter and many others, used military-style assault weapon. These weapons are designed to kill as many people as possible as efficiently as possible. They should not be available to civilians.
It is well past time for the Congress the United States to act.
Please tell our Senators to ban military-style assault weapons now. Add your name to the petition today.691 signatures
Dear Senators Burr and Tillis:
Yet again the nation faces a tragic massacre helped along by easy and inappropriate access to military-style assault weapons. This time it is 17 dead at a Parkland, Florida high school. Before that it was 58 victims in Las Vegas, 26 killed in Sutherland Springs.
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 act after Aurora, Sandy Hook, Orlando, Las Vegas, Southerland Springs and many other devastating mass shootings. It’s high time Congress stopped sacrificing lives and work to address this crisis before even more lives are lost.
We ask that you act now to prevent more carnage by supporting an effective ban on the civilian use of these weapons. Military-style assault weapons, high capacity magazines and bump stocks do not belong in our homes, our streets, our schools, our malls, our movie theaters, our places of worship, or in any of our other gathering places. It is well past time to act but it’s not too late to spare more Americans from death at the hands of killers using these weapons of mass destruction.
Please sign our petition urging Congress to REJECT any legislation deregulating the sale of firearm silencers and make them easily accessible to criminals who want to conceal their crimes.203 signatures
As a North Carolinian, I urge you to please vote against the SHARE Act.
Silencers are already easy to buy if you’re a responsible person with a clean criminal record. If silencers are deregulated, there will be nothing to stop criminals from adding silencers to their growing arsenal: a public safety threat that we have successfully countered for the past 80 years.
This bill puts the profits of gun manufacturers ahead of public safety. We know that during active and mass shooting situations, hearing and seeing gunshots can mean the difference between life and death. Protecting communities and law enforcement is more important than gun company profits. So, please vote against the SHARE Act.
