Today Francine Wheeler, who lost her 6-year-old Ben in the Sandy Hook massacre, gave the President’s Saturday radio address pleading for action on gun control measures.
Minnesota apparently won’t pass any laws to ban assault rifles or high-capacity ammunition magazines this year.
Since the massacre at a Newtown elementary school, much of the discussion on gun violence has been around a proposal to reinstate the assault weapons ban.
Many lawmakers, including Minnesota Congressman Rick Nolan say banning assault weapons is “common sense legislation.”
Northland gun dealers are reporting a spike in military-style gun sales. Pat Kukull, owner of Superior Shooters Supply, says they are out of semi-automatic rifles due to people “panic buying.”
The tragedy in Newtown has sparked a lot of talk about guns, particularly semi-automatic weapons. In fact, Dick’s Sporting Goods announced Tuesday it’s taking the guns similar to the one used in the school shooting off store shelves.
