    Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence, a coalition of religious leaders representing 40 faith groups, announced Tuesday that it will fight for the passage of legislation to ban automatic weapons and ammunition magazines, beef up background checks and criminalize gun trafficking on the federal level.
