AMWA supports President Biden’s Call for a Ban on Assault Weapons

The American Medical Women’s Association supports President Biden’s call for a ban on assault weapons. Firearms are the number one cause of death for U.S. Children. We applaud the U.S. House of Representatives of the 117th Congress for passing life saving gun safety legislation. We call on the U.S. Senate to act on the following bills sent by the House for a vote:
  • The Assault Weapons Ban of 2022 (HR1808). This bill would limit the production, sale, and possession of assault weapons with exceptions related to law enforcement and other situations.

  • Federal Extreme Risk Protection Order Act of 2021 (HR2377). This bill would establish procedures for issuing federal extreme risk protection orders and funding to support the implementation of these laws.

  • Protecting Our Kids Act (HR 7910). This bill would provide for an increased age limit on the purchase of certain firearms, prevent gun trafficking, modernize the prohibition on untraceable firearms, encourage the safe storage of firearms, and other purposes.
