An open letter to the U.S. Congress

We are traumatized. We are grieving. Pass an assault weapons ban NOW!

317 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!

Americans are sick and tired of being sick and tired. We want an assault weapons ban and we want one now. Banning assault weapons saves lives. The 1994 federal assault weapons ban, which lasted until 2004, reduced the risk of a person in the U.S. dying from a mass shooting by 70%. Both the number of deaths and the number of annual incidents decreased significantly. Time and time again, assault weapons are used in the deadliest mass shootings in America. Between 2009 and 2018, assault weapons accounted for 25% of death and 76% of nonfatal injuries in mass shootings. They are uniquely lethal, allowing the most murders in the shortest amount of time. They are weapons of war and have no place on our streets. Congress must act NOW and enact a federal assault weapons ban. If they fail to act, they are letting their constituents down ruinously. History will judge them harshly for it. Other countries have taken decisive action to ban assault rifles and have seen drastic reductions in gun violence. We MUST do the same. Enough is enough. Do this now. Thanks.
