In Scotts own words:
"I'll be honest with you, it's a lot of fun to shoot," Pappalardo, a New York state resident said. "I'm not a hunter. I've never killed anything with it except a bunch of targets. I remember after Sandy Hook happened. I said to my wife I'd gladly give this gun up if it would save one child. That's five years ago now. Since then, more than 400 people have been shot in over 200 school shootings. So I guess my words were just empty words in the spur of the moment. And now here we are, 17 more lives lost. So when do we change? When do we make laws that say maybe a weapon like this isn't OK in today's society." Here is the full story.
