THIS JUST IN…


Jump into the national conversation…


Hi,

A talking head said that there is only about 3-4 years of ammunition out there. We call on Congress to put a prohibitive tax on ammunition for assault, military gradePicture 24 300pixels weapons sold to the public. In time, this tax will reserve this ammunition for our police SWAT teams and our military. We can fight to curb mass murder in America.

That’s why I created a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:

“We ask the Congress and the President to pass a prohibitive tax on ammunition for assault, military grade weapons sold to the public. If bullets cost $1000/bullet, there would be fewer mass murders.”

Will you sign my petition? Click here to add your name:

“Adam Lanza: Gunman’s family at a loss to explain Connecticut shooting”

(CNN) — As with many murder-suicides, the gunman in the Newtown, Connecticut, shooting took to his grave the reasons that compelled him to kill more than two dozen people before taking his own life in the second-deadliest school shooting in U.S. history.

But those who knew the shooter struggled to reconcile the difference between the quiet, withdrawn 20-year-old without a criminal record and the man who donned black fatigues and a military vest and rained hell at Sandy Hook Elementary School last week.

Police said the shooter was Adam Lanza and that he killed his mother, Nancy, in their home before walking into the school and spraying with

bullets 26 more people — 20 of them children no older than 7.

The rampage ended when Lanza apparently took his own life in a classroom. With him were three firearms: a semiautomatic .223-caliber rifle made by Bushmaster and two handguns, a Glock and a Sig Sauer.

Connecticut law requires gun owners to be at least 21. The guns, authorities said, belonged to his mother.

Police have yet to disclose a motive for the attack — which left those who knew Lanza trying to discern whether anything in his past could have foreshadowed the present.

“Obama remains committed to assault weapons ban, White House says”

Washington (CNN) — The White House said President Barack Obama supports reinstatement of a federal ban on assault weapons — a position he took in the 2008 campaign but failed to press during his first term.

“It does remain a commitment of his,” presidential spokesman Jay Carney told reporters as the nation reeled from a mass shooting in Connecticut that mainly killed school children.

An emotional Obama did not address that issue directly in a televised statement from the White House on the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown that killed 26 people but said something had to be done.

“We’re going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics,” said Obama, the father of two girls.

He wiped away tears when he spoke of the “beautiful little kids” killed in the massacre.
