An Unfortunate Honor

As she approached the podium in a small conference room festooned with intermingled tripods and television cameras, Nelba Márquez-Greene described her appearance at a Trenton press conference as “an unfortunate honor.”

Márquez-Greene is the mother of Ana – a child brutally murdered with an assault weapon at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut last December.

The event, sponsored by the New Jersey General Assembly leadership, was to call attention to one particular issue in the gun safety debate – the size of ammunition magazines.

Currently, New Jersey law limits magazine capacity to 15 rounds. Several Assembly members and Senators are pushing to lower that to 10 rounds – the same parameter that was in effect until the Federal assault weapon bill expired.
