The massacre of 20 beautiful children and six of their teachers and other school personnel in Connecticut has galvanized public opinion in favor of better gun control. Let the White House know if you want controls on the sale of military assault weapons and huge ammunition clips to the general public by adding your signature to this petition to the White House.
I stay out of political issues here on NYC on the Cheap, but as a mother and grandmother — including one six year old in the first grade — I cannot stay silent on this important issue. Let’s get the assault weapons ban back. Let’s make sure the existing laws on background checks are not overlooked. Let’s reduce the size of bullet clips so a criminal or madman will have to reload sooner, giving the good guys a chance to stop the madness. Add your name to the White House petition, and also let your Senators and Congressional representatives know how you feel, as well.
