Most, if not all, mass shootings involve the use of assault rifles and high-capacity magazines. Banning these weapons and implementing a buy-back program will, over time, reduce the number of casualties in mass shootings. The 2nd Amendment does not guarantee access to any type of gun. We can protect the right to bear arms and protect lives. It is clear from numerous polls that the majority of Americans want a ban on assault weapons, universal background checks, and red flag laws. We cannot allow the NRA, that primarily represent gun manufacturers, to dictate the nations gun policies.
