Reintroduce legislation banning assault/ semi automatic weapons.
Like nothing I've ever seen. I am 19, and before I am even out of my teenage years, I am seeing more mass shootings than my parents have seen in their lifetime. Newtown, Aurora, Columbine, Oak Creek, Tucson, Portland. There was hope. Senator Diane Feinstein of California proposed legislation to ban semi automatic( or assault weapons). Unfortunately, Senator Harry Reid of Nevada , also leader of the majority in the Senate, has scrapped this legislation. And so, I am asking that you, our 100 senators, reintroduce an assault weapons/ semi automatic weapons ban tossed aside far too soon. Like former Senator Gabby Gifford of Arizona said "This will be hard. But you must have courage". Do not give up. Fight for what you believe is right regardless of your political ambitions.
