Help me pass a ban on assault weapons? http://act.credoaction.com/campaign/senate_weapons/?r_by=53998-5627395-r5f%3DnZx&rc=paste1
Two bills to be introduced in the Senate could ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) plans to introduce a new assault weapons bill, while Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) has pledged to re-introduce his bill to ban high-capacity ammunition magazines.
Since the massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, even legislators who received "A" ratings by the National Rifle Association have indicated shown interest in supporting restrictions on the military-style weapons and high-capacity ammo magazines like the ones used in the Newtown massacre.
The gestures from these legislators are welcome signs, but we need more than sympathetic words. We need real leadership to overcome the death-grip the NRA has on Congress and begin the vital work of addressing the senseless gun violence that threatens our communities.
I think you are a good writer who cares and has curiosity about people and our world. I am honored that you chose to write about me, and have enjoyed your other articles about interesting people from all over the world. I will try to write something on here too someday.
