WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07) voted to pass the H.R. 1808, the Assault Weapons Ban, legislation to ban semi automatic assault weapons and high capacity ammunition devices.
“Mass shootings have tripled since the Assault Weapons Ban ended in 2004. There is a clear line between these weapons and mass violence in our communities,” said Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux. “I know I speak for many in my community when I say we are sick at heart from hearing one story after another of people innocently going about their lives in schools, grocery stores, churches, movie theaters, clubs and being killed with these weapons of war. Enough is enough.”
Rep. Bourdeaux is a cosponsor of H.R. 1808, the Assault Weapons Ban.
Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux lives with her family in Suwanee, Georgia, and represents Georgia’s 7th Congressional District in the 117th Congress. Carolyn is a strong advocate for affordable health care, and economic recovery that puts workers and small businesses first, and investing in her district’s world-class public education system and transportation infrastructure.
Georgia’s fast-changing 7th Congressional District includes portions of the northeast Atlanta metropolitan area, including portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties and cities Peachtree Corners, Berkeley Lake, Sugar Hill, Norcross, Cumming, Lawrenceville, Duluth, Snellville, Lilburn, Suwanee, Grayson, and Buford.
