Conservative Judge Makes the Case for Gun Control

The judge who sentenced Jared Lee Loughner to "seven life terms plus 140 years in Federal prison" wrote an http://articles.latimes.com/2012/dec/20/opinion/la-oe-burns-assault-weapons-ban-20121220">op-ed in the LA Times this week calling for stricter gun control. Larry Alan Burns is a gun-owner, a Republican appointee, says he didn't vote for Obama and prefers Fox News to DailyKos. And he says we need to bring back the assault weapons ban... and make it stronger.

Bring back the assault weapons ban, and bring it back with some teeth this time. Ban the manufacture, importation, sale, transfer and possession of both assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Don't let people who already have them keep them. Don't let ones that have already been manufactured stay on the market. I don't care whether it's called gun control or a gun ban. I'm for it.
