Tom Mauser, the father of one of the kids killed in Columbine, is generating an online petition to try to force the Bush Administration to support extending the assault weapons ban. Here’s what his email said:
My name is Tom Mauser and my son Daniel was killed at Columbine High School. If we don’t stand up to President Bush and the NRA right now, the assault weapons ban will expire and AK47s and Uzis will be back on our streets.Five years ago my 15-year-old son Daniel Mauser was one of 13 people killed at Columbine High School by two students. One of them used an illegal assault weapon.
The national Assault Weapons Ban automatically expires at the end of the summer. Congress must renew this ban or military-style assault weapons will be back on the street and available for sale in our neighborhoods. We cannot let this happen. We have to put pressure on Congress to ACT NOW.
Please take a moment to sign his petition. This man lost a son to the NRA’s gun fetish. That’s too high a price to pay. Please help.
