My name is Christopher Vaughn Heyward and I live in Quail Valley, Missouri City.
I will be going to Elkins High School as a freshman this coming school year. I am also a Boy Scout and have achieved the rank of Life in Troop 1631.
I am writing this letter to support the President’s gun control policy which is common sense legislation.
I believe that people should have the right own a gun; however, people should not be able to own assault weapons or high capacity magazines.
This concerns me because many innocent people have died for no apparent reason such as in Sandy Hook, Connecticut; Aurora, Colorado and Tucson, Arizona and I don’t want Missouri City, Texas to be one of those places.
Assault weapons and high capacity magazines are not used for hunting or self-defense. Therefore there is no reason for an individual to own them.
The only people who should have access to assault weapons and high capacity magazines are the Military and Law Enforcement.
