About the Petition
The killers in Newtown, Aurora and Tucson all used semi-automatic weapons -- guns designed to kill people as quickly as possible. These are not guns designed for hunting game -- they should not be available for sale.
As Senator Feinstein said, "We should be outraged by how easy it is for the perpetrators of these horrific crimes to purchase powerful weapons. As a nation, it’s time we engage in a sane conversation about the proliferation of guns in our society."
We agree. Now is the time.
We demand the immediate passage of an assault weapons ban.
