Ban Assault Weapons

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

Congress should reinstitute the federal ban on assault weapons.
There are currently 121,475 signatures. NEW goal - We need 125,000 signatures!

Petition Background

While it is true that people kill people, and that guns do not shoot themselves, it is also true that mass execution would not be possible without such high capacity weapons. How many people have to die before we ban those weapons?
