Good Morning America recently reported that the shooter in Aurora, Colorado, had an AR-15 assault rifle, which can hold upwards of 100 rounds. The last report was that more than 50 people were wounded and 12 killed. While it is true that people kill people and that guns do not shoot themselves, it is also true that this kind of mass execution would not be possible without such high-capacity weapons. How many people have to die before we ban assault weapons?
That’s why I created a petition on SignOn.org to Congress and President Obama, which says:
Congress should reinstitute the federal ban on assault weapons.
