Westmoreland County residents voice gun control concerns to sheriff


WESTMORELAND COUNTY, Pa. - Gun control took center stage in Westmoreland County Wednesday night.

Residents had a chance to voice their concerns to the sheriff at a meeting.  Sheriff Jonathan Held answered questions about proposed gun control laws.

"I want to hear what the people actually want me to do. I'm their sheriff. They elected me. They hired me. I want to hear what they want from me," Held said.

Held said requests for gun permits were up 52 percent last year.
