  1. “I personally do not believe there is a need for big automatic weapons such as the ones that are usually used in school shootings.” – You are referring to semi-automatic weapons, one shot per trigger pull. Most gun owners have semi-automatic weapons. Automatic weapons are like on television and movies where everyone has one but in reality very few do. These are your “machine guns”. Sorry, haven’t commented for a while but wanted to make that correction for you.

  2. This is a plea to the minority community. In this runoff election you finally have a choice to elect someone that is not involved in controversy. Someone who has said he will not take a county vehicle or the gas it uses. Someone that has bought his own business and created jobs. Augusta has been needing this for several years now. My wife and I proudly voted for Garnet Johnson to be the next Mayor for the City of Augusta, and hope you do the same.
