    Of the 39k gun related deaths per year only about 1,600 are from rifles of all types. Meanwhile close to 2/3 of gun related deaths are caused by suicide. We need mental healthcare reform far more than we need as assault weapons ban. Further depending on which sets of stats between 85-373 people die from mass shootings. The FBI says 85 people the Gun Violence Archive says 373. Either way you are more likely to be killed by a police officer than in a mass shooting. Please stop this fear mongering surrounding semiautomatic rifles. They are not the problem.

    Please support H.R. 1296, the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019. I think the reasons are obvious. #Enough

    As residents of the state of Missouri, my family very much believes in the Second Amendment. I personally carry a handgun with me at all times for defense of myself, family, and others. This bill is simply ridiculous and a blatant infringement upon not only my God-given rights as a human but the rights protected under our Constitution. Please do everything in your power to let me continue to be able to protect my family in the way that I feel is best. Thank you!!
