Renew the assault weapons ban.

Call Dennis Hastert now to urge him to renew the assault weapons ban: 202 225-2976.

The ban is set to expire on Monday, despite strong support — about two-thirds of the public supports the ban, according to recent polls.

If the administration lets the ban expire, starting Tuesday, an 18-year-old will once again be able to buy an AK-47 assault rifle in most states.
