Speak Up: Regulate assault weapons


Tuesday, March 6, 2018

I agree with the editorial recently in the paper.

We need tougher laws regulating the sale of semi-automatic rifles.

I know the Second Amendment types will whoop and holler, but you cannot ignore the evidence.

Most of these mass shootings involve AR types of guns. U.S. criminals are more apt to use handguns to commit robberies and to murder, but these mass shooters prefer assault rifles.

Let’s not forget the guns used in the massacre in Las Vegas.There needs to be more regulations for rifles.

Roy Cooper better pay attention and get behind these efforts.
