Orlando. Sandy Hook. Aurora. San Bernardino.
What do these horrific shootings have in common? Assault weapons.
Assault weapons were used to murder at least 49 people in Orlando, 26 people in Sandy Hook, 12 people in Aurora, and 14 people in San Bernardino.
Right now, these mass-killing weapons are available for purchase on-line, at trade shows, and at gun brokers across our nation. They have become the weapon of choice for mass shooters.
Assault weapons have no place in our cities and towns. No place on our streets.
We need to ban all assault weapons now, while moving quickly to enact common sense gun reform.
