Stop Sale of Semi-automatic Assault Rifles in the U.S.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Why do people need semi-automatic assault weapons?  If you need to shoot something, a handgun will work fine. If you need to hunt, there are specific rifles for that. Semi-automatic weapons are the weapons usually used in mass shootings. Take these guns out of the equation and prevent them from being used to kill more children. I’m talking about school shootings. I started this petition because people are not doing enough, and I have family that are still in school: many cousins, several nieces, and nephews. A little brother.

He has a bright future ahead of him. I want him to live to see it. He has no idea that I am doing this, but after the Colorado STEM school shooting on May 7th, I will not take any chances. And what about you? Don’t you have friends and family who are still in school, or who are at risk of a hate crime just because more and more people are coming out of the woodwork spouting angry rhetoric?

I am not asking you to completely give up your guns. You have your second amendment rights. But please, help me stop the sale of semi-automatic weapons. I have friends who are scared to go college some days. Help me ease their fear. I am nineteen. I don’t want my little brother to get hurt. And if he died I don’t know what I would do.

It might take a long time, but we can make Congress listen and through them, the NRA. I just need your help. Please.
