Democrats Support Stricter Gun Control, Assault Weapons Ban in Platform

Democrats Support Stricter Gun Control, Assault Weapons Ban in Platform

Democrats’ party platform, revealed during their National Convention, calls for more rigorous gun control laws, including reinstating the assault weapons ban. 

The DNC platform says Democrats “believe that the right to own firearms is subject to reasonable regulation,” then calls for “reinstating the assault weapons ban and closing the gun show loophole” and a “focus on effective enforcement of existing laws, especially strengthening our background check system.”

President Barack Obama personally backed down on support of an assault weapons ban after the tragic shootings in Aurora, Colorado and a Wisconsin Sikh temple, realizing such proposals would not have broad popular support.
