Assault On Guns

Some political issues never seem to reach a conclusion. There are issues such as Medicare reform and abortion — and then there’s gun control. It’s a topic that has groups like the National Rifle Association and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence always seeking a legislative edge. For example, in the spring of 1994, the pro-gun control crowd took the fight outside, when a group of female lawmakers held a press conference to denounce assault weapons. Among those voicing their disapproval for such weaponry were (from left) Rep. Anna Eshoo, then-Rep. Pat Schroeder and then-Sen. Carol Moseley Braun. Braun, who co-sponsored legislation to ban the sale of assault weapons, continues to press the issue today, citing her opposition to assault weapons in seeking the Democratic presidential nomination.
