In the wake of the Connecticut school tragedy, a Georgia state senator plans to introduce gun control reforms in the upcoming session to protect Georgians.

Atlanta Democrat Vincent Fort will appeal to his colleagues at the state Capitol to help end the senseless acts of violence like what occurred on Friday. He says in the coming weeks he'll introduce legislation to ban certain types of guns.

"Political cowardness is not an option when our children are slaughtered like this. But specifically I am in the process of having drafted a bill to ban assault weapons and a bill to limit the clips and number of bullets," Fort said.

At the same time, the White House is said to be working feverishly to re-instate the federal assault weapons ban.
