Military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazine are meant for one thing only: killing lots of people very quickly. That's why they're so commonly found at the scenes of mass shooting tragedies like:

 

  • Newtown, CT where 26 people, including 20 first-grade children, were killed with an assault weapon and multiple 30-round magazines. 
  • Tucson, AZ where 6 people were killed and 13 injured, including Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, with a semi-automatic handgun and a 33-round magazine clip 
  • Aurora, CO where the gunman used an 100-round drum magazine to kill 12 people and injure another 58 in a suburban movie theater

 

We can’t stop all gun violence, but we can get these military-style assault weapons and high capacity magazine clips off our streets and out of our schools. 

 

Use this petition to tell the leaders of Congress to take action right now.



Enough is enough. It’s time to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines. It’s time for action.
