Jim Moran: People Worried About Possible Handgun Bans 'Paranoid'
Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) at a Monday town hall on gun violence said individuals who question whether Congress would outlaw handguns in the future are “paranoid.”
Moran held the “Preventing Another Newtown: A Conversation on Gun Violence in America” forum in Arlington, VA on March 11. During the question and answer segment, MRCTV asked if lawmakers would eventually go after handgun ownership. Moran hesitated and said those who think government is intruding in their lives are “paranoid,” but he also said he supports legislation to limit the purchase of handguns to no more than one per month.
“I can understand that there’s always going to be people who are ‘paranoid’ over government attempting to intrude into their life and there are no plans to go after handguns, although I do support legislation that would limit the purchase of handguns to no more than one a month, which seems to be reasonable,” Moran told MRCTV.
