MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5:

There are no words for what took place in a nightclub in Orlando, Florida this past weekend.

But I cannot help but think of the weapons this mass murderer used to rip our country to the core. 

While I believe in your and my rights to bear arms, I cannot think of a single good reason for someone to own an assault rifle.

There is only one use for an assault rifle and that's to kill people, lots of people.

I believe we need an immediate ban on all assault rifles.

Outside of our military, there is no reason for anyone to own an assault rifle. 

Let me know what you think, email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com or post a message on my Facebook page, A Better Mid-South.

Ban assault rifles and make this a safer and better Mid-South and country.
