Ending Gun Violence

"By definition assault is unlawful in all fifty states. However, weapons to commit assault are currently legal, while other military weapons of war are rightfully banned from private, individual ownership.  The very first piece of legislation I will introduce is an Assault Weapons Ban."

By definition assault is unlawful in all fifty states. However, weapons to commit assault are currently legal, while other military weapons of war are rightfully banned from private, individual ownership.

 

assault weapon - noun, any of various automatic and semiautomatic military
firearms utilizing an intermediate-power cartridge, designed for individual use.

The very first piece of legislation I will introduce is an Assault Weapons Ban, a nationwide ban on all assault weapons with the below following new components.

  • Bans individual and private ownership of all assault weapons;

  • Voluntary buy-back program using federal funds to compensate current owners at full market value of their banned weapon(s) for a 12- month period;

  • Mandatory buy-back program using federal funds to compensate current owners at no more than one-quarter market value for second 12-month period

  • After 24 months, mandatory give -back and collection of banned weapons;

  • As laid out in the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, arms will be given to each State’s National Guard [the people’s] arsenal for use or destruction as each State’s National Guard [the people] sees fit.

 

“A well regulated Militia [meaning National Guard], being necessary
to the security of a free State, the right of the people [meaning
National Guard
] to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”

 

These program could be paid for with DoD money saved from ending the wars to fight terrorism in the Middle East and finally fighting terrorism and eliminating weapons of terror in the United States.

 

I also support other commonsense gun control measures and safety equipment legislation. After my first year in office, I plan to proudly display my anticipated “F” rating from the NRA and hopefully an “A+” rating from gun control groups like Moms-Demand-Action, Brady Campaign, Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, March for Our Lives
