U.S. Supreme Court Declines Hearing on Assault Weapon Ban Case

The U.S. Supreme declined this week to take up a challenge to New York and Connecticut laws banning assault weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines.

The laws were passed in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, that left 20 young children dead. The decision not to hear the case means the laws will remain in place.

The U.S. Bishops have generally supported assault weapons bans. For a background on their position, click here.

    i think that if the Bishops would put more emphasis on holding people responsible for their own actions, they would actually being doing something useful. when was the last time you heard a priest speak about responsiblity, the need to make restitution for their sins and the very real possiblity of going to hell if you are not repentant?
