TELL CHRIS CHRISTIE: REDUCE THE SIZE OF GUN AMMUNITION MAGAZINES

In approximately four minutes, the shooter at Sandy Hook Elementary shot 154 bullets, killing 20 children and 6 educators.

He’d brought 10, 30-round, large-capacity gun ammunition magazines into the school. When he was forced to reload, 11 children were able to escape.

If magazines were reduced to one-third the number of rounds available that day, just think how many more could have survived.

In New Jersey, Governor Chris Christie is considering whether or not to sign a bill into law that would reduce the size of ammunition magazines to 10 rounds – but opponents of common sense reforms from across the country are pressuring him to veto it.

Please join Sandy Hook Promise in urging Governor Christie to sign this common sense bill that should be a model for all states, so that we can prevent the heartbreak Newtown families endured from occurring elsewhere.

  1. It isn’t the size of the magazine it is STILL about the mental condition of the person pulling the trigger. Punishing law abiding citizens and taking away their right to protect themselves and their families is not only ridiculous, it is obscene. How dare you take away my right to defend my right to protect myself from any and all means necessary from some crazed lunatic. Why is it that none of you guys even ever bring up the real thing that actually WOULD make a difference…controlling those with mental problems. No, let’s just blame it on the guns. A gun is just a tool, just like a fork, a knife, a baseball bat or a car. Drunk drivers kill way more people than guns but nobody is proposing banking cars. Why is that?
