The heartbreaking shootings in Newtown, CT, tragically highlighted the terrible toll that gun violence takes on our nation, our communities and our families. The shootings have renewed the call for sensible gun policies in this country. There should be background checks conducted on the sales of all guns. Now 40% of guns are sold with no background checks at all. Also, assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines do not belong in civilian hands and should no longer be sold.
