CHARLOTTE. JUST HOW HOT IT’S GOING TO GET. THANK YOU, JOHN. THIS MAN SURVIVED THE SHOOTING AT UNC CHARLOTTE. AND NOW, DREW PISCARO, YOU CAN SEE PUTTING HIS SCARS ON DISPLAY, TO CALL FOR ACTION. YOU GOT ELECTED TO ACT. PISCARO HAS BEEN VERY VOCAL SINCE THAT SHOOTING AT UNC. CALLING TO KEEP THIS FROM HAPPENING AGAIN. JUST DAYS AFTER TWO MORE MASS SHOOTINGS LEFT 31 PEOPLE DEAD. HE WAS THERE AT THE STATE CAPITOL. ASKING FOR ACTION. REPORTER JOE BRUNO IS LIVE TONIGHT WITH HIS MESSAGE. JOE?

AT LEAST THE PEOPLE WHO ARE PUTTING THESE BILLS FORWARD GET AN UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT PARTS THEY’RE OKAY WITH, AND WHAT PARTS NEED TO BE WORKED ON. PIS CARO JOINED DEMOCRATIC LAWMAKERS AT THE PRESS CONFERENCE. AT THIS TIME, THE TWO BILLS DO NOT APPEAR TO HAVE ANY REPUBLICAN SUPPORT, WHICH THEY WILL NEED IN ORDER FOR THEM TO
