Tom Mauser's Petition to Renew the Assault Weapons Ban

I got an email this moring from Tom Mauser, who lost his son Daniel in the massacre at Columbine High School. As Tom says, "If we don’t stand up to President Bush and the NRA right now, the assault weapons ban will expire and AK47s and Uzis will be back on our streets."

Here is what you can do to help:

1) Sign the petition to extend the assault weapon ban:

2) If you have a blog or a website, link to the Personal Petition Page Tom will generate for you from your site and encourage your readers to sign up. Their special petition software will show you the number of people that sign up because of your effort, and even generate a map showing how the supporters are distributed across America.
