Dear Editor,

It is now six years since that terrible day when 26 innocent children and teachers were murdered in cold blood by a deranged young man with assault weapons in Newtown Elementary School in Connecticut.

But has there been any substantial progress made regarding banning assault weapons and improving background checks? Not really.

Our politicians in Washington seem unable to move ahead with any legislation on this because the NRA has far too much lobbying power.

People do have the right to own guns, but far too many people who are mentally ill are somehow able to gain possession of these weapons.

The American people have witnessed and experienced many more shootings since Sandy Hook, and there will probably be more to come.

Our country is turning into a virtual battlefield. People cannot go to the mall, the movies, a house of worship, arena or nightclub without having the fear of possibly being shot.

Something needs to be done now by Congress.
