It asks for criminal background check online, gun shows and private sellers and to “Get high capacity rifles and ammunition magazines off our streets,” among several other things.
“We don’t need these semi-automatic weapons on the street,” Carpenter told Council.
Bravo to all 782 Mayors. You are representing the majority of your constituents.
