As a survivor, I believe in the power of sharing my story to advocate for change. The FUDGE Foundation encourages all Miami Valley residents to vote and get involved, remembering that elections have consequences. The House of Representatives recently passed a piece of legislation that would ban assault rifles for the first time since 2004. This new law would criminalize the knowing sale, transfer, manufacture, transfer, possession, or importation of various types of semi-automatic weapons, as well as large-capacity ammunition feeding devices.
While we remain hopeful that the ban will pass, we urge you to contact your senator and ask them to pass the assault weapons ban to help ensure safer communities across the United States.
