After the recent events in Las Vegas, the worst mass shooting in American history, it’s time to finally take action on gun violence. We’ve had a moment of silence, we’ve had reflection, now is the time to Act. This issue is political, because it’s folks in Washington who can fix it.
Congressman Seth Moulton, along with Congressman Carlos Curbelo (R-FL), are leading a perfectly bipartisan effort to introduce legislation to ban the manufacture, sale, and use of “bump stocks.” The Members hope to introduce and move legislation as quickly as possible. “Bump stocks” are devices that use a semi-automatic weapon’s recoil to allow it to fire at a rate mirroring that of a fully automatic weapon — 400 to 800 rounds a minute. These weapons are legal, unregulated, widely available, and can be purchased online for as little as $100. Their sole purpose is to exacerbate the rate of fire.
Please support Congressman Moulton and Congressman Curbelo on this common-sense bill.
Chair, Wilmington Democratic Town Committee
