Washington County Sheriff Calls for Ban on Assault Weapons

Machias - The sheriff of Washington County says he wants to lead the way in calling for a Maine ban on assault weapons.  This, in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre.
Sheriff Donnie Smith says he supports the constitutional right to bear arms, but he doesn't believe that means all arms.  Smith says common sense has come into play and it's time to end the sale of semi-automatic weapons.
The sheriff adds that Sandy Hook shooter Adama Lanza's history of mental problems, and those who have committed similar crimes, is reason for Maine and other states to do more to address mental illness.
