RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Richmond Public Schools Superintendent Jason Kamras made a passionate plea to ban assault rifles.

His tweeted plea comes after 19 students and two teachers were gunned down with one at a Texas elementary school.

Kamras tweeted in part, “I probably shouldn’t say this, but I don’t know how to protect my 22,000 students from them. They scare the hell out of me. I’m begging you.”

Officials said the shooter used an AR-15-style rifle in the mass shooting.
