How many more people must be massacred by assault rifles until Congress gets these weapons of war off our streets? We are tired of mourning. We are tired of empty platitudes. Nations like Australia took decisive action to ban assault rifles, and saw a drastic reduction in gun violence. I’m asking you to help protect lives. Pass an assault weapons ban now.
