Bill/Issue: HR 1296 - "Assault Weapons" Ban of 2019

  • Position: OPPOSED
  • Author: Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI)


House Democrats are corralling votes for a federal "Assault Weapons" ban.

HR 1296 would ban nearly all semiautomatic rifles, as well as AR and AK pistols, and institute a "buy-back" program for your property. 

This awful legislation represents one of the largest attacks on self-defense rights and individual freedom since the gun and magazine bans of the Bill Clinton administration.

What's more, the government insultingly believes it can "buy back" property it never owned in the first place!

“The government cannot ‘buy back’ firearms it never owned in the first place,” said FPC President Brandon Combs. “The people of the United States would not comply with a total ban or submit their property for destruction. It’s just not going to happen. Politicians are talking about gun bans for attention and free media exposure just like mass killers do.”

These outrageous calls to ban "Assault Weapons" are rooted in ignorance, would render tens of millions of Americans more unsafe, illegally force law-abiding gun owners to divest themselves of their property, and possibly even send the SWAT team to your door to enforce this awful ban.

Therefore, it is absolutely imperative that you take IMMEDIATE action to stop this "Assault Weapons" ban before it can be called to a vote.

Please contact the House NOW using our Take Action tools and tell them you won't stand for a ban on your fundamental rights.
