Republicans block gun safety reform

Republican Senators Who Voted Against Gun Safety Bill

U.S. Senate Republicans moved to block a ban on assault-style weapons put forward by Democrats on Wednesday, as the United States recorded the highest number of mass shootings for the second year in a row. The motion, put forward by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, would have reauthorized the Assault Weapons Ban, which first passed in 1994 and expired 10 years later.

The ban covers certain semi-automatic firearms and large capacity ammunition magazines, and ushered in a decrease of deaths from gun violence while it was in place. "The American people are sick and tired of enduring one mass shooting after another," Schumer said on Wednesday in a speech bringing the motion to the floor. "They’re sick and tired of vigils and moments of silence for family, friends, classmates, coworkers." - Reuters

TakeAway: Check your investments to make sure you're not profiting from gun violence. Vote for Democrats to reduce gun violence and mass shootings.
