A new federal Assault Weapons Ban #HR1296 has been introduced in the House by @davidcicilline (with 190 co-sponsors). As a good deal of evidence in support of such a ban is drawn from my research on the 1994 #AWB, it's worthwhile to review some of my findings. 1/

THREAD FOLLOWS
The 1994 #AWB took effect on Sept. 13, 1994, and it remained in force for exactly 10 years, expiring on Sept. 13, 2004. The primary goal of the 1994 #AWB was to reduce mass shooting violence. The 1994 ban was a direct response to five mass shootings from 1989-1993. 2/
The 5 mass shootings: 1989—Cleveland Street Elem. School in Stockton (5 dead); 1989—Standard Gravure in Louisville (8 dead); 1991—Luby's Cafeteria in Killeen (23 dead); 1993—101 California St. in San Francisco (8 dead); and 1993—Long Island Rail Road near Garden City (6 dead). 3/

I served the US faithfully BECAUSE of my faith, not in spite of it. I had the full support of my father — a Muslim Imam & my family. /3
