Reinstate the assault weapons ban

(Continued)

How many more Americans will be massacred before Congress takes action? Will it take a lunatic with an assault rifle spraying the Halls of Congress or the Supreme Court to put an end to the lunacy? How many Americans will stand up, gun owners included, to demand an end to the insanity of weapons that massacre?

It is time to reinstate the assault weapons ban and the mega-bullet clips. The only way to do this is to pressure Congress to do what’s right. It is the right thing to do; otherwise, more Americans will be massacred, and a silent declaration will have been acknowledged that gun owners do have more rights than non-gun owners, and that, in my view, is outright wrong.
