Teacher at Oregon's Most Recent School Shooting Pushes for Reasonable Gun Control

Seth Needler was teaching biology when gunshots rang out on June 10th at Reynolds High School in Troutdale.

 

He believes a lot of people support reasonable gun control, but don't tell their politicians.

 

"I've heard of read that politicians get a lot more calls from pro gun advocates than gun control advocates.  And so they feel that gun control supporters don't care as much about it.  If there are more people bombarding their representatives, then I think maybe something will happen."

 

It was revealed last week that the shooter at Reynolds High School. Jared Padgett got the AR-15 from his older brother who he shared a room with.  His 24 year old brother is a member of the U.S. Army Reserves and stored the gun in their bedroom.
