End gun obsession

Posted: December 18, 2012 - 6:41pm

If the NRA thinks they can “handle” the Sandy Hook mass shooting like they handled the rest, with their predictable, tired rhetoric, they are sadly mistaken. The American people will lead the fight this time, and action will be demanded.

The second amendment protects the right of militias to bear muskets. It needs to be updated to reflect modern weaponry. There is no reason to own an automatic assault weapon, period.

The rights of public safety outweigh the rights of gun dealers. Our national obsession with weapons of mass destruction must end, and it must end now.
