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/

(1) I #resisted following the March for Our post-birth Lives but some of the photos are too good not to share. In this one, a proud American NRA member who happens to be black peacefully protests the idiocy. Arguably, he has more at stake than most of the kids marching.
(2) If given the chance, I can make a very strong case for African Americans and "people of color" benefiting from this administration more than other groups. But the Left isn't interested in hearing it and resorts immediately to the expired race card.
(3) As @Dloesch is constantly telling us, black males are one of the groups, if not the group, most affected by gun homicides, especially in certain large cities, that have coincidentally been held by Democrats for many decades, and are supposed gun free zones (aka killing zones)

The MAIN mental health problem here is the sadomasochism of the White majority that keeps voting @GOP to arm and kill themselves and others.
It's egregiously delusional to expect that you can flood the streets with hundreds of millions of guns and still prevent rampant gun death.
The White American majority is in outright denial/disavowal of the decimation of its communities by random mass gun violence aka terrorism.

The shooting in #SutherlandSprings was among the worst in U.S. history.

3 of the 5 deadliest shootings have come in the past 2 years.
This trend is tragic. It's horrifying. It is NOT normal. And we need your help to do something about it.
If you agree that thoughts and prayers are not enough to stop this senseless violence, add your name and join us: giffords.org

So, people are trying to link Sutherland Spring's shooter Devin Patrick Kelley to antifa. Because of course they are.

1) If you're upset about #SutherlandSprings and gun violence but you're not a gun violence prevention activist, we need your help NOW.
2) This isn't glamorous work - it's painstaking. We show up at statehouses and in-district meetings, we call Congress, we call companies.
3) That's how we killed hundreds of bad @NRA bills and passed good bills over the past 5 years. It's how we've changed corporate policies.
