Outlaw the sale of weapons of war

As long as we continue to sell weapons of war to private citizens, mentally stable or not, massacres like Aurora, Colo., will continue. No one can shoot 72 people without the aid of a weapon that is capable of firing hundreds of rounds of ammunition in a very short time.

As long as our legislators bow to the vote of getting contributions of the NRA, and we citizens allow this, more innocent will die. Outlawing the sale of weapons of war will not sacrifice any rights we are granted by the constitution. Contact your congressman while the television pictures continue to show the horror these weapons cause.
