We need your help RIGHT NOW with one quick phone call to support passage of federal legislation that would ban military-style assault weapons and high capacity magazines.
H.R. 1808, sponsored by Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline is poised for a full vote NOW and must happen before the summer recess this weekend.
BREAKING NEWS – “House Dems have decided to do assault weapons ban on floor today, separately from policing bills, per multiple sources. Still working on broader policing deal.”(*)
The federal ban on assault weapons expired on September 13, 2004. It’s past time that a new and strong federal ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines becomes the law of the land.
Please call your Congressmember TODAY. Don’t know who thatios? Look them up at Vote.org
Tell the staffmember that you are constituent and that you want them to Vote YES on HR 1808 (ban on assault weapons) and not tie passage of this bill to any other unrelated legislation.
If you do not reach a live operator, please leave a brief message with your name, your city and the bill number for which you want to vote yes: HR 1808.
Please contact your US Rep. today and let us know how the call went by sending us a quick reply note: I made the call
Thanks for all you do,
