On February 15th, 2019, Representative David N. Cicilline (D, Rhode Island, 1st Congressional District) introduced H.R 1296; the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019. The purpose of the bill, which is clearly stated in plain text is "To regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes". The full text of the bill and its summary can be found here:

https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/1296

The bill "makes it a crime to knowingly import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess a semiautomatic assault weapon (SAW) or large capacity ammunition feeding device (LCAFD)". This is an egregious and disturbing attempt to further infringe upon the protected right to bear arms under the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution. Even more terrifying is that the bill already has 198 co-sponsors, meaning that 198 members of the House of Representatives have pledged to support and vote to pass the bill. We, the people, must act!

By signing, you will help make clear to the members of Congress who will be emailed this petition that you will not stand to have your rights infringed upon. We will use this petition as a show of popular support for the 2nd Amendment and our ability to exercise our rights. It's time that we stopped living in fear of the government, and remind them just how many law abiding firearms owners are in the United States, and how many of us are more than happy to vote them out of office if they continue to attempt to pass legislation that violates our rights. If we come together, anything is possible, and we have been gifted the ability to fight tyranny through the 1st Amendment. Let's use it!

Send this petition to your friends and loved ones and get them to sign too! We need all the support we can get to make this happen.
