Ban The Use of Tear Gas on Civilians

0 have signed. Let’s get to 50,000!


In 1993, tear gas was classified as a chemical weapon and in 1997 it was banned from use in international warfare. Yet US police continue to use it, legally, against civilians. It can be lethal especially when used around the elderly, children, and those with several common pre-existing health conditions. In addition, many black Americans disproportionately have pre-existing conditions like asthma that could make tear gas lethal. CURRENTLY it is being used on peaceful protestors across the nation (and the world).

Sign this petition to the U.S. Senate to have tear gas use on civilians banned nationwide!
