10 Pro-Gun Myths and Why FACTS should be basis for our FEARS.

 

Look at some FACTS and weep.

Congress has debated the efficacy and constitutionality of federal regulation of firearms and

ammunition, with strong advocates arguing for and against greater gun control. In the wake of the

July 20, 2012, Aurora, CO, theater mass shooting, in which 12 people were shot to death and 58

wounded (7 of them critically) by a lone gunman, it is likely that there will be calls in the 112th

Congress to reconsider a 1994 ban on semiautomatic assault weapons and large capacity

ammunition feeding devices that expired in September 2004. There were similar calls to ban such

feeding devices (see S. 436/H.R. 1781) following the January 8, 2011, Tucson, AZ, mass

shooting, in which 6 people were killed and 14 wounded, including Representative Gabrielle

Giffords, who was grievously wounded. These calls could be amplified by the August 5, 2012,

Sikh temple shooting in Milwaukee, WI, in which six worshipers were shot to death and three

wounded by a lone gunman.
