    I am a 54 year old republican with a 10th grader in public school. Please eliminate assault style weapons and use background checks that are through and involve substantial time to complete. We have to start somewhere or there will be mass killings every other day. Known criminals are not committing these group killings, everyday people are. Maybe we should start protesting where these guns are being sold. Guns should be for hunting and in some cases for protection, but they shouldn’t be easy to obtain quickly and if you break laws or are a threat to society, your should be taken away by the rest of us. And for that we need a good list of those who have them.

    Ban Military-Style Assault Weapons

     

    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.

    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.

    Thank you.
