Ban assault weapons

Littleton, Colorado. Blacksburg, Virginia. Now Newtown, Connecticut.

Once again, we weep. Once again, we wonder: When will our leaders stand up to the gun lobby and say: Enough.

It is time -- it is past time -- to reinstate the assualt rifle ban.

It is time -- it is past time -- to tell the National Rifle Association that we have a well-regulated militia. It's called the army. The right to bear arms does not mean the right to bear an assault rifle. It does not mean that anyone can buy a gun only on-duty soldiers should carry.

We implore our elected officials: Stand up to the gun lobby. Reinistate the assualt weapons ban.

 


Letter to
Barack Obama Our Leaders
Dear President Obama,

Littleton, Colorado. Blacksburg, Virginia. Now Newtown, Connecticut.

Once again, we weep. Once again, we wonder: When will our leaders stand up to the gun lobby and say: Enough.

It is time -- it is past time -- to reinstate the assault rifle ban.

It is time -- it is past time -- to tell the National Rifle Association that we have a well-regulated militia. It's called the army. The right to bear arms does not mean the right to bear an assault rifle. It does not mean that anyone can buy a gun only on-duty soldiers should carry.

We implore our elected officials: Stand up to the gun lobby. Reinstate the assault weapons ban.
