Our hearts are with the people of Colorado in the wake of the horrible tragedy in Aurora. The shock and trauma from the images and stories from Aurora are still very much with us, and it is impossible to put in words to describe the pain being felt by families and friends of the victims.
In the wake of this massacre, it's time to put aside politics and reinstate the federal ban on assault weapons.
I just signed a petition urging President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney to ask Congress to reinstate the expired federal assault weapon ban today. I hope you will join the cause by signing the petition below.
