What Our Lax Gun Laws Bring Us

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Ms. CHU. Twenty children ages 6 and 7 went to school last Friday to learn, to play, to take their first steps into this world. What happened to them and six brave teachers determined to protect them is horrific and unimaginable. Our hearts break for their families, their friends, and their loved ones. What has been taken from them cannot be taken back.

The tragedy at Sandy Hook happened because we turned a blind eye to the carnage our lax gun laws bring us. It's time to change those laws before another school, mall, or movie theater is turned into a crime scene.

We must ban assault weapons. We must ban extended ammunition clips that shoot 30 bullets at a time. We must demand that everyone everywhere receives a thorough background check if they want to own a gun.

It's time to reclaim our security, and it starts by making changes to the law.
