Op-Eds Highlight Lt. Gov. Robinson’s Failure To Keep Communities Safe

In a series of op-eds across the state, a retired nurse practitioner, a gun owner and grandmother, a gun violence survivor, and a gun safety proponent took the time to share their stories about what community safety means to them. Each writer named Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson as a threat to safe communities across North Carolina. 

Following the six-year anniversary of the Las Vegas shooting, they noted that Robinson “sought to cast doubt on the disaster,” has “accused the student survivors of the Parkland, Florida mass shooting of being actors,” and is “off the mark” on common-sense safety measures that even responsible gun owners support.

As Attorney General, Josh Stein has fought to keep people safe and prevent violence in communities. He has prioritized investments in violence interruption programs to break the cycle of violence, fought to strengthen partnerships with law enforcement and the communities they serve, promoted safe gun storage practices, and called for common-sense gun safety measures that keep guns out of the hands of violent people. As governor, he will continue to fight for North Carolinians’ right to be safe in their neighborhoods and schools, at work and at worship.
