Assault weapons have no place on American streets.
My cousin, Dani and his partner, Jean, were looking forward to building a life together in Florida. But they were murdered at Pulse nightclub, along with 47 others, on June 12, 2016, by a man filled with hate and armed with a weapon of war.
These firearms allow murderers to kill hundreds of people within minutes. Las Vegas was no different. The gunmen killed 59 people and injured 527 others in under 10 minutes from his 32nd floor hotel suite across the street, all made possible by military-style assault weapons.
