Georgia State Senator, Vincent Fort, has been very vocal in his desire for Georgia to pass an Assault Weapons Ban after seeing week after week how much pain and death these guns brings to cities like Atlanta.
After the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary, Fort said:
“As a father, I have watched the events in Newtown unfold with pure horror. The time has come for reform so that these kinds of tragedies throughout the country are eradicated. How many more innocent children must be killed before we act? I am calling on my colleagues in the Georgia General Assembly to join me in passing legislation that will help to end these senseless acts of violence once and for all.”
Senator Fort will hold this forum at 11am in the Georgia Capitol building, joined by parents from the Champions for Children organization.
