In a non-binding resolution to be heard Wednesday, County Commission Chairman Robb Pitts also calls for "the passage of reasonable legislation" in Georgia that would limit or prohibit the sale of high-capacity magazines and bump stocks, keep the mentally ill from buying guns and create a universal database of individuals who are prohibited from buying guns. The resolution also calls for federal or state law to limit or prohibit gun sales to those under 21.
“We have a real opportunity to reduce gun violence and prevent mass killings,” Pitts said in a statement. “This is a time for leaders in government and business to come together for action. Young people are watching and waiting.”
