Letter to Senator Feinstein on Fighting to Ban Weapons of War
March 27, 2013
Dear Senator Feinstein:
On behalf of the more than three million members of the National Education Association, I would like to thank you for your leadership on the critical issue of preventing gun violence in our nation’s schools.
Please be assured that when this legislation comes to the Senate floor, NEA will continue fighting to pass your ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazine clips, along with the additional common-sense measures to prevent gun violence.
Your proposals are consistent with the views of our members. Responses to a recent NEA member poll indicated overwhelming support for stronger gun violence prevention laws, including background checks and bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazine clips.
Again, we thank you for your leadership on this critical issue. We look forward to working with you to prevent more senseless tragedies like those that have already cut short the lives of so many students and educators.
Dennis Van Roekel
