More information

Families in a small town Texas church were praying when a heavily armed gunman walked in and killed 26 people in a matter of minutes.

Among those killed were the pastor’s 14-year old daughter, a pregnant woman and a five year old child.

The weapon used in this massacre was an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle: the same weapon of war used by killers in Aurora, Orlando, Las Vegas, Sandy Hook, San Bernardino -- and many other mass shootings that have barely even made the national news.

After Las Vegas almost 100,000 Avaaz members demanded a ban on these weapons of war, and with partner groups we took a million strong message to Congress’ doorstep. Today and everyday let’s flood Congress with the same message until we win: no more thoughts and prayers! Ban weapons of war now!
