Ban Assault Weapons Now

To be delivered to President Donald Trump, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Assault weapons should not be used by civilians and have no place in our cities and towns.
There are currently 661,357 signatures. NEW goal - We need 675,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Las Vegas. Dallas. Orlando. Sandy Hook. Aurora. San Bernardino.

What do these horrific shootings have in common? Assault weapons.

Assault weapons were used to murder five people in Dallas, 49 people in Orlando, 26 people in Sandy Hook, 12 people in Aurora, and 14 people in San Bernardino.

Right now, these military-grade weapons are available for purchase online, at trade shows, and through gun brokers across our nation. They have become the weapon of choice for mass shooters.

Assault weapons have no place in our cities and towns. They have no place on our streets.

We need to ban all assault weapons now, while moving quickly to enact commonsense gun reform.
