It’s hard to believe that Congress will not act to prevent more horrendous acts such as the shootings in Newtown and Columbine. Public polling on this issue is clear: The majority wants a strong ban on assault weapons and extreme weapon rounds, as well as background checks.
To pass one without the other will not do, and anyone opposing these measures should be ashamed. Twenty small children were slaughtered. Is gutting this bill and bowing to the NRA what this country wants? If so, we can stop worrying about immigration; who would want to come here?
