The Tacoma News Tribune: My 20-year-old son died from a gunshot in Tacoma. Every day I honor his legacy

“Tragically, America’s gun death rate is 11 times that of peer countries. Every day, 100 Americans are shot and killed and hundreds more are wounded. In Washington alone, more than 700 people die by guns every year, and in the last decade, the rate of gun deaths in our state increased by 27 percent, compared to a 17-percent increase nationwide. By early February of each year, more Americans are killed with guns than are killed in other high-income nations in an entire year. This is unacceptable.”

The Maryland Reporter: Gun-control activists urge passage of background-checks bill

“Unchecked sales of rifles and shotguns pose a serious threat to public safety in Maryland,” Danielle Veith, a volunteer with the Maryland chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, said at a news conference at the Lowe House Office Building. “The 2018 mass shooting at the Capital Gazette was a tragic reminder that a shotgun is every bit as deadly as a handgun and should be kept out the hands of people who shouldn’t have them. It’s past time for lawmakers to close this loophole and pass legislation that requires a background check on every single gun sale and transfer.”
