April Spencer started this petition to Senator Tina Smith and

It has become clear that our system is broken, it is paralyzed. We are unable to join the rest of the civilized world and stop mass killings.

Wasting time arguing about background checks is not the answer. This approach does not prevent psychopaths from getting their hands on assault weapons. Most of the murderers had no record of mental defects. These bills are intrusive and insulting.

I am asking you to write a bill that would accomplish these three things:

1. Stop the manufacturing of assault style weapons. Single shot weapons are sufficient for hunting and self protection. There is no scenario in which it would be necessary or safe for a civilion to use an assault style weapon in the U.S.A.

2. Make it a felony to possess, buy, or sell one of these weapons.

3. Create and encourage a "no questions asked" surrendering policy and safely destroy the weapons.

There is no easy answer. Obviously this will not stop all of these tragedies, but it seems glaringly clear to me that this is doable and will make a dent, at the very least.

Thank you for your time.
