Banning assault weapons and large-capacity magazines is a common-sense solution to address our nation’s gun violence crisis.
Some of the deadliest mass shootings in America all have one thing in common: The shooter used an assault weapon. They're uniquely lethal, designed to kill as many people as possible, as quickly as possible. These weapons of war have no place in civilian hands.

Right now, the Senate and House have introduced legislation to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and we need to make it clear that the majority of the American people support these bills."
