The Second Amendment , like any other right, is not unlimited. For example, although we are guaranteed freedom of speech , it is prohibited to yell "fire" in a crowded building. It is a felony to threaten to assassinate the the President of the United States.
We are advocating for :
1. Universal background checks on all commercial gun
The Manchin-Toomey Senate Bill and King –Thompson House Bill will
close the gun show loophole which currently allows firearms to be sold
by private dealers to individuals with no background check.
These bills also strengthen penalties for straw purchases wherein a
firearm is purchased by an individual then sold to someone who can not
pass a background check.
2. Federal limits on ammunition rounds
Currently most states have no limits on the amount of ammunition
rounds in a firearm . Many ammunition magazines carry up to 100
rounds of ammunition. This ofcourse increases the chances of mass
murders in a shooting as the gunman does not have to pause to reload.
3. Federal ban on assault rifles
Assault rifles can kill more accurately and are easier to hold thereby
making it the weapon of choice for those intending to kill easily and more
accurately. There is no reason why military style assault weapons used in active
combat should be on our streets.
