Rutherford B. Hayes High School Letter to Our Senators
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
We the students of Rutherford B. Hayes High School in Delaware, Ohio are writing to urge you to support common sense gun laws to reduce gun violence in the United States. One of the first steps towards this goal would be supporting more detailed background checks. Background checks are supported by over 90% of all Americans and are a commonsense tool for keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and the dangerously mentally ill. Background checks on gun sales are the most effective way to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people and help save lives.
In 1994 there was a nationwide ban on assault style weapons but it expired in 2004. As students and future voters we want a new ban on assault style weapons such as AR-15s and other similar rifles. There is no need for that style of weapon to be in stores or in the hands of the American people. We want change now. We are aware that Mr Portman has accepted over three million dollars from the NRA. While they may be in your pocketbook, we are the new voters of Ohio and we will vote for our future and safety.
Enough is enough. It’s time to end the epidemic of gun violence in our country. Thank you for doing what is right for the people of ohio and the United States.
