Petition to Ban Assault Weapons

With easy access to a military style assault weapon, a man filled with hate turned a place of celebration and joy for Orlando’s LGBT community into a scene of devastation and loss.

This is the worst mass shooting in America, with 49 shot dead and 53 wounded, many of them young Latinos just beginning their lives. Such mass shootings have been increasing. We say: Enough.

We demand that Congress act to stop the carnage now: Military style assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines, which make such shootings possible and so deadly, have no place on our streets. They are made for battlefields, not our schools or our churches or our gathering places. We demand that Congress step up to the plate at last and pass an effective ban on civilian use of these weapons. Please sign our petition.

Signing this petition means you may receive email from Members of the Alliance to Ban Assault Weapons.
