LETTER TO THE EDITOR: It's time for action on assault weapons
Saturday, December 15, 2012 | 3:29 p.m. CST
Once again we are watching the news about someone killing kids with a semi-automatic weapon.
How many more times will we have to watch this kind of story before Congress enacts an effective ban on assault weapons? How many more children have to die before Congress provides adequate funding so that existing laws regarding background checks on purchases of guns are effective? How many more people have to die before kits to convert single shot weapons to semi-automatic weapons are prohibited?
How many more?
