For years, we have experienced a terrifying and largely preventable epidemic of gun violence in Florida and across America. Yet time and again, our elected officials have failed to keep us safe by addressing the issue head on. They have failed to pass – or even seriously debate – a ban on assault weapons.
Enough is enough. The time has come for meaningful action.
That’s why Ban Assault Weapons Now is undertaking a full-court press on the Florida Legislature to finally pass a statewide assault weapons ban.
But we need your help.
The first step toward getting these weapons of war off of our streets once and for all is ensuring this lifesaving legislation has the support of as many lawmakers as possible.
Will you help us ban assault weapons now by contacting your state legislators and asking them to co-sponsor SB 370 in the Senate and HB 653 in the House of Representatives?

In the Senate, SB 370 has been referred to the Judiciary Committee, chaired by Sen. Jeff Brandes. In the House, HB 653 has been referred to the Criminal Justice & Public Safety Subcommittee, chaired by Rep. Cord Byrd.
Join us in insisting lawmakers act to prevent the next mass shooting today, before it’s too late.
