STATEMENT OF PAGV CO-CHAIRS CYRUS R. VANCE, JR., AND MIKE FEUER ON NORTHERN CALIFORNIA SHOOTINGS

"Just nine days after the church massacre in Texas, multiple victims have been wounded or killed by a single shooter at seven different crime scenes in Northern California, including an elementary school. It is once again abundantly clear that congressional action needs to be taken immediately to prevent the next gun violence tragedy.
 
"Following the shootings in Sutherland Springs and Las Vegas, prosecuting attorneys and law enforcement leaders from cities across the nation will convene in Washington, D.C. on November 28 and 29 for an emergency, bipartisan summit on gun violence. We strongly believe that our country can, and must, address the gun violence epidemic."
