It’s Time to Ban Assault Weapons

The issue: Assault weapons and high-capacity magazines are commonplace in mass shootings and make shootings more deadly.

The good news: During the ten years we had an assault weapons ban in the US, the number of gun massacres fell by 37 percent. The Assault Weapons Ban of 2021, passed by the House of Representatives on July 29, would regulate these dangerous weapons, prevent mass shooting injuries, and save lives.

Our task: Tell the Senate to pass the Assault Weapons Ban of 2021 to reduce the devastation of daily gun violence in America.
