Abrams responded by quickly claiming she is not "anti-gun", then laying out numerous gun controls she wants to put in place: "I believe in a background check". Meghan McCain attempted to grill Abrams on wanting to ban AR-15s and she was just all the way down.
Abrams then called semi-automatic weapons "weapons of mass destruction", saying that they do not "belong in civilian hands". "I have shot an AR-15, and I think you probably have too, and while it's an incredible amount of power, it also is an awesome amount of destruction, and there is very little that can be done to protect vulnerable communities when the AR-15 is present".
"I assume that by banning it, you would be rounding them up", she said. In his letter, President Carter wrote, "Popular confidence is threatened not only by the undeniable racial discrimination of the past and the serious questions that the federal courts have raised about the security of Georgia's voting machines, but also because you are now overseeing the election in which you are a candidate". The candidate has a chance to become the first black woman to be governor of a state.

With 2:32 left, Los Angeles held an 88-77 lead but the rest of the way, it was outscored 33-18 by going 6-for-24 from the floor. The Lakers will likely get another chance when they host the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night at Staples Center.
The contentious gubernatorial race between Abrams, a former leader in the state House of Representatives, and her Republican opponent, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, has been marred by accusations of voter suppression.
Georgia is a pro-gun state, ranking ninth in Guns and Ammo's best states for gun owners, but it is still unclear how Abrams' views could impact her election chances.
Kemp reportedly suggested rescheduling the debate to Monday night, but Abrams said she had already made plans to meet with voters in southeastern Georgia at that time.
