Assemblymember Quirk: Common Sense Gun Laws Needed Now

(Sacramento) – The recent mass shooting at a Florida high school prompted Assemblymember Bill Quirk (D-Hayward) and many other Assembly Democrats to announce new legislative efforts to reduce gun violence and call on the federal government to do the same. “Despite what you hear from the advocates for no gun control, there is no way to pick out people ahead of time who are going to do this violence,” said Assemblymember Quirk. “And, in fact, the Republican Congress and President got rid of a law that said certain mentally disabled people can not get guns.” Watch this Assembly Access video to see more of Assemblymember Quirk’s call for immediate common sense gun control laws.
