Please pass sensible gun control legislation. Americans deserve safe communities. We have seen mass shootings in churches and synagogues, schools, universities, movie theaters, nightclubs, massage spas, outdoor concerts, cafeterias, and now grocery stores. There is no place to feel or be safe. The 2nd Amendment argument has become so manipulated and distorted that people now think they have a right to assault rifles.
We need gun control laws that:
ban the sale of assault rifles to civilians
ban high capacity magazines
require background checks with no loopholes
require training and licensing for all gun owners
require a five-day waiting period no matter how quickly the background checks are done
I know you understand the need for Americans to have safe, peaceful communities in order to thrive, to be healthy, and to be productive. And I know you have compassion for the victims and communities whose lives have been changed by mass shootings. Please do all you can, and know you have my support. Thank you.
