September 12, Raleigh — Coming out of the tragedy at UNC-Chapel Hill a few weeks ago, these students are connecting the dots between gun violence and the policy violence of our extremist NC General Assembly. After their long train of abuses this session, and after losing at the US Supreme Court, Moore and Berger are following the lead of Cleta Mitchell and pushing voter suppression schemes to insulate themselves from the voters.
