President Obama has proposed a sweeping set of new legislation, which if enacted will bring some sanity to the regulation of guns and ammunition.
Now it is up to Congress.
Do they stand with the victims or the assassins?
Do they stand with the large majority of responsible gun owners or the gun makers?
Do they finally stop kowtowing to the extremist NRA leaders or listen to the vast majority of NRA members who favor much of the president’s agenda?
We have a chance as a nation to reduce the daily carnage in our cities, schools, playgrounds and neighborhoods.
Keep assault rifles where they belong — on the battle field not our streets.
