Worthy petition

Daniel Mauser was one of the children murdered at Columbine. His father, Tom, has worked toward new gun laws since that time. According to his site, "The national Assault Weapons Ban automatically expires at the end of the summer. Congress must renew this ban or military-style assault weapons will be back on the street and available for sale in our neighborhoods. We cannot let this happen. We have to put pressure on Congress to ACT NOW."

Signing his petiton will presumably help apply that pressure. Calling your local elected officials should help, too. (Not sure who they are? If you know your zip code, Project Vote Smart will help you find 'em.)
