Congresswoman Johnson Condemns Mass Shooting in California

Nov 8, 2018
Press Release

“After 307 mass shootings in our country this year, enough is enough.

“We mourn the loss of the 12 Americans killed, including one police officer, in California. Once again, we are summoned to console the families who saw their loved ones killed at the hands of senseless gun violence.

“Our country has demanded action on this issue, yet the epidemic has continued. Democrats will make passing comprehensive, universal background checks out of the House of Representatives a priority in the next congress. I urge the Trump administration and Senate Republicans to join the new Democratic House majority to enact common sense gun safety reforms next year. I repeat once again, we owe it to our constituents, that we must come together to pass significant gun violence prevention laws, as well as comprehensive mental health, immediately.”
