What can be done?

First, Congress should ignore the National Rifle Association. Next, pass a law forbidding private ownership of semiautomatic weapons. We don’t need them! They should be only in the hands of the military and police.

Eliminate the sale of semiautomatic weapons. Reference the sales records of purchasers of semiautomatic weapons, collect them and destroy them. Anyone caught with a semiautomatic weapon should automatically get a year in prison. No excuses.

Rifles and shotguns are for hunting or protecting your property or target shooting. Eliminate the carrying of guns in schools and in public.

Wake up mothers! How many more of your children or family members do you want killed?
