This morning President Obama clearly outlined his and the Administrations position on gun control. The time has finally come to initiate controls on the weapons that have no use except to kill people. Assault weapons belong in the military not in the hands of civilians. Laws banning these weapons, high capacity clips and mandatory background checks on all gun sales must be implemented. The Supreme Court has already ruled that these measures are not a violation of the Second Ammendment and will not restrict the ownership of hand guns, rifles for hunting or guns for personal protection.
I urge everyone to contact their members of the Senate and Congress to request they support the President's proposed ban on these awful weapons.
