People of faith seek better gun laws

To the Catholic Sentinel:

Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence, a national coalition of 50 denominations and faith-based organizations, celebrated its annual Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath.  Gun violence in our country is responsible for 30,000 deaths each year. 

The most simple action we can take is to enact common sense gun legislation. The National Rifle Association (NRA) claims to protect responsible gun ownership privileges, but in reality it goes to great lengths — and spends a huge sum of money — to ensure that there is a free and open market for guns in our country. It is opposed to virtually every form of gun regulation.
