Support stricter gun laws and reinstitute the assault weapons ban.

    1. Pétition de

      Tim Vandehey

      Kansas City, MO

In one week, Americans have seen a mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school and an Oregon mall, a teenager shot in a Florida parking lot because his music was playing too loud, and a murder-suicide in Kansas City. Gun violence is out of control, and one solution is making guns less available and easier to trace. Conservatives and the National Rifle Association have dominated this issue for years, intimidating lawmakers and presidents alike into allowing guns to proliferate and lobbying for weaker gun laws. Now, we're seeing the effects: carnage in our streets and our schools. People are dying for the NRA's ideology, and it must stop. We ask the President to take the lead in calling for immediate legislation to ban assault weapons, institute stricter controls on all firearms, and enforce the Second Amendment of the Constitution as written: as the right of people to bear arms in the context of a state militia.

      There are too many young lifes being taken away just because adults have the right to carry a weapon. I hear the same thing over and over again that the weapon belonged to an adult family member.

      Although I'm not against guns, I am against them being so easily available to the public. Its about time for stricter enforcement.

      June 20th 2013, my daughter Jessica shelly was shot dead by an on again off again relationship. this man used heavy doses of steriods and was a body builder.. my daughter was a small woman..they fought and he beat and shot her twice after fighting all day.. he had 9 loaded pistols and a rifle in his home? I was told he didnt even have to have a permit for any of these weapons.. he was never convicted. Grand jury ruled it a justifiable homicide..Fl's great "dont back down law" at work.
