Murder Victim's Father Proud of President's Gun Safety Plan

A dad who lost his son to gun violence outside of a Memphis nightclub was glad to hear about the President's gun safety plan.

"I had to watch him lay on the ground for over 2 hours before they even picked the body up," said Stevie Moore.

Stevie Moore's son Prentice was killed 9 years ago outside a nightclub in Southeast Memphis.

He was killed by an A-K 47 assault rifle, the same type of gun President Obama proposed banning.

"What do you need those guns for when we got military to protect us that use those type of guns, police department, they use those type of guns but what do an ordinary ciMEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - "I had to watch him lay on the ground for over two hours before they even picked the body up," said Stevie Moore, whose son Prentice was killed nine years ago outside a nightclub in Southeast Memphis.

He was killed by an AK-47, the same type of gun President Obama proposed banning.

"What do you need those guns for when we got military to protect us that use those type of guns, police department, they use those type of guns but what do an ordinary citizen need that type of gun for?" he asked.

Moore supports President Obama's stance on gun control, especially cracking down on stolen guns and prosecuting people who use them.

"The gun that killed my son was more than likely a stolen gun. I don't have no knowledge where that gun is, that gun may have killed 3 or 4 more people," said Moore.

After his son's death, Moore started an organization called "Stop the Killing" to educate others about gun violence.

"Sometimes you have a gun on you, it makes you cocky, a little more powerful," he said.

He believes President Obama's plan will prevent other parents from having to see their child's body on the street.

"We have to learn how to mend, forgive, and keep our life going and teach that it's wrong to harm people period," said Stevie Moore.
