“We need to outlaw assault weapons, and if that isn’t possible, we should increase the buying age from 18 to 21. High-capacity magazines should be prohibited. Background checks should be strengthened. Enact safe storage and red-flag legislation. Repeal the protection of gun makers from responsibility, “He’s said.
