CHUCK SCHUMER: ‘The Public Will Not Accept This New Normal’ Of A Mass Shooting Every Month…(Guns Clean…Check…Ammo Supplies Good…Check!)
Dec 16 2012
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Sunday called for a three-step plan on stricter gun control laws at the federal level, saying “the public will not accept this new normal” of frequent mass shootings.
“When the public sees these as isolated incidents, they’re less upset than when they occur one after the other,” Schumer said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
“The public will not accept this new normal — one of these incidents every month, these mass shootings.”
Schumer called for three steps on the federal level:
Reinstate the federal assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004.
Limiting the size of clips to “maybe no more than 10 bullets per clip.”
Restrictions on “mentally unstable people” purchasing guns.
