It's up to us to demand action from our representatives in Congress. If we don't demand it, they will surely cave in to the NRA and their $ and those kids in Newtown will be quickly forgotten. And don't expect any help from the media... they'll quickly move on to the next story.

As I aaid before the guys in congress are sippingg tea with their pinkies up and AK's on their laps -- but I signed - and will continue to do so - I'm sure I've signed this one a few times - but this issue deserves repetitive action -- if a clip can hold hundreds of bullets I can sign petitions hundreds of times!!

I think Lee's got the right idea - we need to hit 'em, then hit 'em again, and then hit 'em again until they get the idea that we are serious about this and will not go away.

Lee, Arielle...would it be accurate to then assume that you both think it's ethical to vote multiple times on election day? Stuff ballot boxes? By your stated intent, lee, and your unthinking approval, Arielle, you both render such a petition worthless and meaningless. A petition is ONLY of value if each signature represents a different individual, of voting age....else the custom of presenting a 'petition' of, say, 50,000 signatures is rendered utterly meaningless, since it may only represent the misinformed views of, say, 5,000 individuals...each of whom signed it 10 times...or, to use Lee's (I'll)logic...maybe only 100 persons...each of whom signed it 500 times. Is THIS the breadth and depth of your ethics? Integrity? Morality? Sad!

Well, we're making ourselves heard. Adrian Smith of Nebraska has gone from "I'm a life-long member of the NRA/Don't worry, I'll do everything to see that your right to bear arms is not infringed" to "Congress must promote sensible policies which keep firearms out of the hands of dangerous people while respecting the rights of law-abiding citizens."

Still don't trust him any farther than I can spit . . .

Walt G., while I appreciate what you say, signing more than one petition like this is not the same as stuffing the ballot box, or signing an official petition to get a matter on the next ballot. Think of it more like campaign contributions: If you give a dollar to this campaign, are you going to be listened to as closely as someone who contributes $100,000?

This type of petition is like a letter-writing campaign, or making multiple phone calls to your representative. It's making yourself heard.

Well said Dianna. And it all presupposes that no NRA member or gun proponent has ever repeatedly signed petitions and that Walt has also spoken out in outrage against that too. There is such a thing as the unethical railing against others for being unethical. It's great to be human!

I oppose. I want the best weapons for my situation. Not governed by some politician who is using hysteria to drive fear. I do not fear some "bogey man". No ban! Enforce the constitution everywhere.

Gladly signed, nobody needs an assault weapon of any kind, only criminals and lunaticks have those weapons.
