Columbine Victim's Dad Asks For Assult Weapon Ban To Continue

CNN.com - Gun victim's dad wore son's shoes to NRA meeting - Apr 17, 2004

Tom Mauser, who's son was killed at Columbine, walks into the NRA national convention -- in the shoes his son was killed in -- to ask Dick Cheney to continue the assult weapons ban. A security guard turned him away; NRA members cheered, and yelled "Get a life."

I cannot say how much I despise anyone who thinks that this man, whose son was killed and is attempting to halt the manner in which it happened, should "get a life".

NRA members should be ashamed. You've just spit on a man who's son was killed, so you can keep your guns.

i didnt see the current ban stoped them from getting the assult weapons. How is it going to stop new ones? so its illegel to have on, so only outlaws will have guns right? while good person Joe has a single shot gun, the crimals wil have assualt rifles right? does anyone see the problem?

Guns don't kill people, people kill people.
Cain did not take a machine gun and cut Able in half he took a rock and smashed his skull in. The point is the tool is not to blame the man is blame. I have never heard about the parents of the children who commited the attack being scolded for letting their children have access to the firearms that allowed them to shoot other kids. If I were the father I would not waste my time harassing the NRA which had nothing to do with the attack. I would be looking for the parents who LET THEIR CHILDREN HAVE ACCESS TO THE FIREARMS. The assult weapons ban dosn't stop any crime and never would have prevented Colombine. A few gun locks would have. Cost about 5$ apiece. Hey, now that is cheap legislation not to mention a little bit of a forgotten idea called RESPONSIBLITY.
