SLC sheriff wants gun dealers to restrict semi-automatic sales

ST. LUCIE COUNTY —St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara is not waiting for a change in gun laws. Instead, he’s taking matters into his own hands.

Sheriff Ken Mascara wants local firearms dealers to stop selling semi-automatic weapons to anyone younger than 21. He has already personally called about 10 gun dealers to talk about his request. So far, it’s being well received.

The St. Lucie County Sheriff will be mailing letters to 84 federal firearms licensed gun dealers in the county today. He will be asking them to voluntarily stop selling semi-automatic weapons to anyone under 21-years-old.

Mascara wants to encourage safer gun rules locally, without waiting for the state to take action. He said they are looking at the events at Parkland and he has set up a committee to review all of their school security protocol to make sure they are all responding accordingly.
