Please sponsor the bill HR 1714. As I've been watching the videos of the police using tear gas and 40mm "rubber" bullets on protesters, as well as seeing pictures of the aftermath of these weapons, I'm disgusted at how the police, who are supposed to protect us and serve us, brutally attacking people of their own community. It's unacceptable to me that the "American" police are able to use weapons against American citizens that would be considered a war crime to use against soldiers of another nation. We need to demilitarize the military for the sake of protecting citizens from the tyranny that grows from the police having too much power. I turn 18 in a couple days and this November will be my first time voting. I hope to see your names sponsoring this bill so that it will make knowing who to vote for a whole lot easier for me come fall.
