UPDATE: The gun used to kill 2-year-old Nikolette Rivera in October has been recovered in a sting operation executed by both PA Attorney General Josh Shapiro and NJ Attorney General Gurbir Grewal. Overall, the sting resulted in the recovery of 36 guns and 20 ounces of methamphetamine.

Nikolette was struck by a bullet fired from an assault rifle outside her Kensington home last fall. She died in her mother's arms at the scene. "Although two men were charged in Nikolette's murder, the gun used in the shooting was not recovered until last month. It was recovered when a Philadelphia gun trafficking [sic] named Robert Crosley allegedly sold it to a buyer here in Camden," said New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal."

A SOMBER REMINDER ABOUT ASSAULT WEAPONS: About 80% of the shooting victims in Philadelphia survive their injuries, due in part to the city's excellent first responders and trauma teams, and also the fact that most of the city's gun violence is handgun violence. Shots fired from handguns impact the body differently than shots fired from assault rifles (see comments for more info).

And, as Mike Bloomberg is currently running for President, it is important to remember that both he and his gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety, of which Moms Demand Action is a subsidiary, have endorsed and supported Senator Pat Toomey and Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick.

Toomey does not support an assault weapons ban, saying on Fox News in August that "they're extremely popular, and so to ban an extremely popular firearm, I'm not going to support that...That would be an infringement on the rights of law-abiding citizens.” Further, Fitzpatrick refused to sign on to the House assault weapons bill this past fall, leaving the bill seven votes shy of passage in the House.
