IN SUPPORT OF . . . PART II

Dear Readers, I am passing on this e-mail with the hope and prayer that some one will sign and continue to share, until there are too many signatures to be ignored:

The only way to respond to the unspeakable horror that occurred in Newtown, Connecticut, is to act.
The ready availability of assault weapons is what helped make many of these recent shootings so appallingly deadly. They have no place in civil society—no place in our schools, shopping malls or city streets.
That’s why I’m working with colleagues in the House and Senate to pass the Assault Weapons Ban. We’ve launched a new online campaign at NoMoreAssaultWeapons.com, so we can gather support for this bill. By adding your name today, you’ll help us counter the powerful gun lobby and finally get this important law passed.
The bill is being introduced this month. We have to act. If there was ever a time when enacting effective gun control legislation was possible, it’s now. Please join us today.
Like millions of other Americans, my heart was shattered when I heard the news out of Newtown on December 14. As a mother of two young boys, it is difficult to imagine the depth of the pain of the parents of the victims.
But I'm not just a mother – I’m a U.S. senator. And I believe it is my duty to do whatever it takes to keep these dangerous weapons out of the hands of those who will use them to kill innocent people.
Americans have the right to be protected from gun violence, but we must demand it. We must hold every single lawmaker accountable and require them to enact laws that prevent these kinds of massacres.
The prevalence of gun violence in our country is a tragic problem that must be corrected. Now is the time to make a difference.
Thanks for your support on this critical issue.

YES, WE ALL NEED AND MUST SUPPORT Ms. Kirsten Gillibrand
