Sound off: It is time for common sense on gun laws
I agree with Bob Costas, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, the Brady Campaign and Vice President Biden. It is well past the time for common sense gun safety legislation. The horrible event in Newtown, Mass., must never be repeated. The NRA is an extremist organization which represents gun manufacturers and the funeral industry, not law abiding gun owners.

There is absolutely no reason for citizens to possess assault rifles and high capacity clips. I urge everyone to contact our worthless legislators at both the state and national level and demand a ban on assault rifles and high capacity clips. Further, it is time for law enforcement to be given the tools to stop the madness of gun violence by closing gun show loopholes and making background checks mandatory.

How many more innocent children must die before we stop this madness.
