Peggy McCrum Statement on San Bernardino Shooting
LOS ANGELES - Peggy McCrum, President of the California Chapters of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, issued the following statement on the San Bernardino mass shooting.
"All of us in California are saddened by the senseless tragedy in San Bernardino, where innocent lives were ended by guns in the hands of those intent on doing harm. Our hearts are with the families and friends of those affected, as well all first responders involved. This horrendous event has deepened our resolve to work even harder to keep our state safe. Our 26 California Chapters of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence work to reduce gun violence every day and remain committed to keeping guns out of dangerous hands and preventing more innocent lives being lost. Enough is enough."
The mission of the Brady organization and its Million Mom March is to create a safer America by cutting gun deaths in half by 2025. For more insight on gun violence prevention, follow us on Facebook and Twitter @BradyBuzz.
