Trump must lead gun control change
I’ve read with interest news stories following the shootings in Las Vegas, an attack which has been described as the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history and as an “act of pure evil” by U.S. President Donald Trump.
Machine-guns are legal under Nevada state law and people don’t need a permit to buy or possess a rifle, shotgun or handgun there.
Former U.S. House of Representatives member Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona, who survived being shot in the head in 2011 while meeting with constituents outside a supermarket, has been fighting to stop gun violence in the States. She co-founded Americans for Responsible Solutions and has spoken out strongly about the events in Las Vegas, calling on Congress to take action, asking political leaders to “find the courage” to deal with the issue of gun violence.
The shooter, who killed himself, had an arsenal in his possession. Thanks to the many mass shootings in the U.S. in recent years, people live in fear and it is time President Trump strengthens the law for the safety of his fellow Americans. Roscoe Reilly, Welland
