VIRAL ‘Law-Abiding Citizens Are the Majority!’: Gun Owner Takes on City Council in Gun Show Debate
In the wake of the Parkland high school massacre, a North Carolina city is debating whether a yearly gun and knife show should still be held this summer.
Though the city attorney said the city cannot cancel the event at Greensboro Coliseum, the council opened the discussion up for public debate Tuesday.
The conversation brought out passion on both sides, with critics claiming that the show “allow[s] people to take advantage of the gun show loophole and bypass background checks.”
Another man suggested holding job fairs instead of gun shows at the arena.
On the other side, gun rights advocates – including Mark Robinson – implored the city’s leaders to consider the rights of law-abiding citizens.
“When are you all gonna start standing up for the majority? … I’m the majority! I’m a law-abiding citizen who’s never shot anybody. It seems every time we have one of these shootings, nobody wants to put the blame where it goes, which is at the shooter’s feet. You want to put it at my feet! It doesn’t make any sense,” he said.
