From Mayors Against Illegal Guns:
Responding to a fire on Christmas Eve, four firefighters in Webster, NY were ambushed by a gunman. Two were killed, and two were seriously wounded.
The weapon used to shoot and kill these first responders was the same Bushmaster AR-15 used to slaughter 26 people -- including 20 innocent children -- in Newtown, CT.
It’s past time to ban the sale of dangerous assault weapons. Until Washington acts, murders like this -- committed by criminals firing weapons that no civilian needs -- will simply go on and on.
Call your members of Congress right now and tell them you support banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
The shooting in Webster was a nightmare scenario. A disturbed man set fire to his own home and then set up a sniper attack to pick off firefighters as they rushed in to help.
Because of his felony record, the shooter should never have been able to purchase a gun in the first place. But there is no legitimate purpose for the weapon of war he used against those coming to his aid -- no matter how he got it.
We need to Demand A Plan to end gun violence, and a critical element of that plan is to end the sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines once and for all.
Your members of Congress need to hear from you right now:
NOW is the time to keep hammering away at the gun crazed insanity running rampant in American. NOW is not the time to sit down and shut up - except LaPierre. Please Wayne, sit down and shut the fuck up!
