Today is five years from the date of the Virginia Tech massacre. The shootings are a tragedy; so are the federal regulations governing handguns. One of these facts can be changed. This eerie video from the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence shows a crowded, ordinary mall overdubbed with 16 seconds of gunfire (the amount of time in which Tucson, Arizona shooter Jared Loughner unloaded his 33 round assault clip). Assault clips have only one purpose: to fire more rounds in a concentrated amount of time, injuring or killing as many people as possible. The callout to write congressional leaders in support of H.R. 308, a proposed bill to ban assault clips, is a direct action toward gun-reform and public safety.
