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.
