On Sunday, Sen. Charles Schumer called on major gun retailers like Wal-Mart to suspend the sale of assault weapons temporarily. “In Florida alone, there were nearly 5,000 background checks requested on the day of Sandy Hook, as opposed to the day before where there were 3,000,” said Schumer. A presidential task force on reducing gun violence, being headed by Vice President Joe Biden, is due to issue its recommendations to President Obama on Tuesday. Among the items expected in the recommendations is a renewal of the federal assault weapons ban. Congress allowed the ban to expire in 2004. Schumer called on the nation’s largest gun retailers to hold off on selling assault-style rifles until Congress has considered gun control reform legislation. “When a mainstream store like Wal-Mart says ‘we’re not doing it,’ it’s going to make people think twice,” Schumer said. New York’s senior senator warned that sales of assault-style weapons could surge later this month when pro-gun advocates hold “Gun Appreciation Day.” Schumer said according to organizers, the purpose of Gun Appreciation Day is to ramp up gun sales. “These groups are encouraging individuals from all over the country to go to their local gun stores to purchase assault weapons,” said Schumer. Wal-Mart is the nation’s biggest gun retailer."[/i][/b] [/quote]

to own guns.
