Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) on Wednesday urged senators to pass an assault weapons ban that she says would help prevent mass shootings like the one in Newtown, Conn.

Feinstein made her plea at a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sitting in front of a board with the faces of all the victims of the Newtown shooting, which included 20 young children, the senator said increased restrictions on military-style assault weapons would help prevent further tragedies.

“Sadly, [Newtown] is not an anomaly,” Feinstein said. “We have witnessed an increased number of these mass killings. The one common thread running through these mass shootings … is that the gunman used a military style semi-automatic assault weapon or a large capacity magazine to inflict unspeakable terror.”
