Aurora Shooting at Batman Showing Demands Action, Says The Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence

[20-July-2012]
SAN FRANCISCO, July 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — We are deeply saddened and outraged by the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado earlier today, and our thoughts are with all of those affected by this horrible tragedy.

Already, politicians around the country have begun to offer their condolences to the survivors of this terrible event, as they do every time a mass shooting happens in America. Inevitably, these statements are long on good intentions but short on action.

The American people deserve better. All of us should be free to live our lives without being affected by gun violence. Instead, across the country, too many Americans are murdered by guns every single day.

It’s time to demand that our leaders go beyond offering condolences, and instead address these problems head-on. It is simply far too easy for dangerous people to access military-style weapons. Something has to change.

There are solutions to this epidemic. We know that smart gun laws save lives and we remain committed to fighting for safer communities.

The Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence is available to answer questions about gun laws and gun violence in Colorado and across the country as well as strategies to reduce gun violence nationwide.
