Common Sense Gun Control Measures

1. REINSTATE ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN, ALLOWED BY CONGRESS TO EXPIRE IN 2004. What legitimate gun owner needs assault weapons for home protection and hunting?

2. BAN HIGH CAPACITY MAGAZINES, LIMITING number of bullets in a clip. Mass murders, as occurred today, in the Gabby Giffords and Georgia Tech tragedies could at least be limited in the number of dead and wounded victims.

 3. BACKGROUND CHECKS AND A WAITING PERIOD to keep guns out of the hands of felons and mentally disturbed individuals. It's common sense that even if such measures aren't foolproof, they are better than the no-holds-barred availability of firearms as exists today.
