“As a mother of two, I can’t sit idly by as I watch children get shot while attending school, watching a movie, going to church, a concert, or while they’re just trying to have fun. And as a fifth-generation Iowan and as someone who has previously overseen fishing and hunting licenses at the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, I know how important it is to folks who use guns responsibly to continue to have the right to hunt and practice. The assault weapons ban I voted on today will not take any guns away from law-abiding owners, but will help keep some of the most dangerous weapons off of our streets. The assault weapons ban was in place prior to 2004, and research found that mass-shooting fatalities were 70% less likely to occur during the federal ban period. It’s imperative, for the safety of our kids and communities, that this legislation is signed into law.” – Congresswoman Cindy Axne
