Today I called on Congress to ban high-capacity magazines like the one used in the Aurora shooting, that enabled the gunman to shoot 71 innocent people in just a couple of minutes. The 2nd amendment grants Americans the right to own a gun. But it doesn’t grant people the right to walk into a theater with a high-capacity ammunition clip and kill or maim scores of their fellow Americans. We need a national conversation that finally recognizes that it’s not about banning all guns; it’s not about taking people’s guns away; it’s about taking reasonable steps that will stop terrible shootings from becoming mass casualties.
