Resistbot Petition: Pass S 736, the Assault Weapons Ban, NOW!

An open letter to the U.S. Senate

Pass S 736, the Assault Weapons Ban, NOW!

210 so far! Help us get to 250 signers!

This October marks 5 years since the largest mass shooting in America, when a shooter fired assault weapons into a crowd of Las Vegas concertgoers. He murdered 58 people and injured 422 others.  Too many Americans are being senselessly gunned down in public spaces in towns and cities across the nation. On July 29, 2022, the House of Representatives passed HR 1808 to ban assault weapons in response to the heartbreaking mass shooting tragedies in Highland Park, Uvalde, Tulsa, and Buffalo. President Joe Biden is ready and willing to sign the bill into law. It’s the Senate’s turn to pass it now, as S 736. I want you to do so. 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 take action after Aurora, Sandy Hook, San Bernardino, Orlando, Las Vegas, Sutherland Springs, Parkland, Pittsburgh and many other devastating mass shooting incidents and the scope of death and destruction caused by gunmen with weapons of war is growing. Your thoughts and prayers are not enough. The Senate must act now to stop the carnage with an effective federal ban on the civilian use of these weapons. NOW is the time to act! Thanks.
