Letter: Time, again, to ask elected officials for meaningful gun reform

I was the Howard County co-coordinator for the Million Mom March, for sensible hand gun reform, in 2000. I certainly never dreamed I would be back to the same plea, to all, to contact our U.S. senators, our Maryland senators, all our elected officials, to please, act now to stop these unbearable tragedies from guns. It's past time to enact meaningful gun reform. The un-elected NRA cannot hold this much power.

Do we really need assault weapons in our homes? Can't that be the first step, to bring back the ban on these military weapons? Can we endure another Connecticut tragedy? 

Please, please, don't let this horrible crime become just another footnote to American history.
