All-too easy access to guns and the resulting gun violence are a grave problem in the United States today, and this is especially true in urban and distressed neighborhoods and communities of color.
Specifically, the NAACP strongly supports S. 150 / H.R. 437, which would implement a permanent ban on the sale, transfer, importation, and manufacturing of assault weapons as well as large-capacity magazines and other ammunition feeding devices that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

As always, thank you!
