April Action Alert: Ban Assault Weapons Now
“Data shows that a federal ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines is highly effective in saving lives in mass shootings. When a federal ban was in effect from 1994-2004, America saw a 37% decline in gun massacres and a 70% decline in assault weapons traced to crime. That means countless lives saved from preventable tragedies. But after Congress let the ban expire in 2004, mass shooting deaths increased by 347%.”
Some of the deadliest mass shootings in America have one thing in common: the shooter used an assault weapon. They’re uniquely lethal, designed to kill as many people as possible, as quickly as possible. These weapons of war have no place in civilian hands.
