Join Pennsylvania gun violence prevention groups as we stand together to call for real action to reduce the gun violence in our communities. We are calling on our U.S. Senator Pat Toomey to support S. 66, The Assault Weapons Ban of 2019.

Senator Toomey, who touts himself as a gun violence prevention advocate, has refused to openly support a ban on semiautomatic assault weapons. These weapons of war have allowed for devastating mass shootings to repeatedly unfold, such as the violence witnessed in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio this past weekend (and including the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting which took place in our own state last year). Senator Bob Casey (PA) has already joined dozens of other legislators in support of this life-saving legislation. It's time that Senator Toomey stand up to protect Pennsylvanians from the horrific tragedies that these weapons leave in their wake.
