Favoring gun control
The General Assembly and the governor should consider what North Carolina citizens think about gun control.
According to a late February survey by Elon University, nine out of 10 people in the state say they support background checks. Nearly as many (83 percent) support waiting periods before citizens can purchase handguns, while banning the sale of semiautomatic assault rifles (56 percent) and limiting the number of rounds of ammunition in clips or magazines (55 percent) also have the backing of a majority of North Carolina residents. The margin of error in this poll was 3.28 percent.
So, who do Gov. Pat McCrory and members of the General Assembly represent, the citizens of North Carolina or the NRA?
