The shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon was the 45thschool shooting in 2015, and the shooting at Northern Arizona University’s Flagstaff campus is the 46th, making for two mass shootings on college campuses in less than 10 days. Yet many lawmakers refuse to improve the lax gun safety laws that directly contribute to gun violence in this country. Our citizens continue to suffer and bleed, but there have been no hearings, no debates, and no votes to attempt to curb the violence. It is time for the community to come together and speak up for gun violence prevention and increased gun safety legislation.
On Tuesday, October 13, from 10:00-11:00 U.S. Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12) will host a community forum to hear thoughts and opinions on gun control for the community. The forum is open to all and will be held at Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute at Hunter College 47-49 East 65th Street.
