Newtown school shooting: Thoughts and tributes
My tribute to those lost in Newtown
While gun limits are not the only solution to prevent more massacres, he said, there must be some restrictions put on citizens' access to military-style weapons with large capacity magazines. 'If I go out to the range, I have one of my pistols that holds like nine or 10 rounds. I have had guns that would shoot like 20 rounds, but I've never had anything that held 30 rounds or more and I don't see any sense in that whatsoever. There's got to be a limit to what they let the citizens have at their disposal.' In a subsequent video, he contends a six-shot revolver is all that's needed for protection.
The iReporter watched some of the NRA top lobbyist's remarks on Friday, but said this video was not a direct response to anything that was said there.
After posting this video, the iReporter vowed to sell most of his weapons and give the proceeds to the Newtown victims' families. 'Let us band together to pull high capacity clips and assault rifles off the street,' he said.
