Senator Feinstein is introducing legislation, but it does not look like it would prevent the kind of violent mass murders that are becoming so common these days in America's public spaces:

Write the senator and ask for more constraints that will apply to all guns, not just one type of gun (assault rifles)

Let's get the law updated so that people who purchase guns are held responsible; automatic/semiautomatic weapons are not available; chemical tracers are part of a gun so that a bullet can be traced back to the registered gun from which it was fired; and lead bullets are a thing of the past.
