Dallas’ acting mayor has asked the NRA to hold its annual convention in a different city and says it is time for its leaders to do more to end gun violence in the wake of last week’s high school massacre in Florida.

Dwaine R. Caraway, who works under mayor Mike Rawlings, made the unexpected comments at a press conference on Monday.

Despite owning five guns himself, he said there was ‘no reason’ for anyone to own assault rifles and semi-automatic weapons like the AR-15 used by gunman Nikolas Cruz.

‘I am all for the protection of the 2nd Amendment, but I am also for protecting the children and a safer Dallas.

‘I have five guns, one in my car, one in every room of my house… [but] I am saddened by the fact that every time that we turn around, there is some type of gun violence.’

‘Who needs an AR-15 to go hunting? Who needs an AR-15 to protect their house?’

‘It is a tough call when you ask the NRA to reconsider coming to Dallas, but it is putting all citizens first, and getting them to come to the table and elected officials to come to the table and to address this madness now,’ he said.
