Columbine: 13 killed, 23 wounded.
Virginia Tech: 32 killed, 17 wounded.
Fort Hood: 13 killed, 34 wounded.
And now, 6 people killed and another 13 wounded, including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, in a matter of seconds.
What do these tragedies have in common? The shooters used large capacity ammunition magazines to kill a lot of people in a short amount of time.
Strong legislation, H.R. 308, has been introduced by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy from New York to limit large capacity ammunition magazines, like the ones used by the Tucson shooter.
The Tucson shooter was able to fire 31 shots in rapid succession with one magazine, hitting 19 people...in a matter of seconds.
Enough is enough! We need to go beyond offering our prayers and sympathy. We simply cannot allow this kind of firepower.Click here for a link to bill text and to send a letter to your US Representative
