Jun 10, 2014 Issues: Gun Violence Prevention

Washington, D.C.  – Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici released the following statement in response to the deadly shooting on the campus of Reynolds High School in Troutdale, OR.

"My deepest condolences go out to the Reynolds High School community and the families affected by this tragic shooting. It’s the second time in less than a week that our community has lost a student to gun violence in a school. This has to end.

"As these deadly events increase in frequency, it is unconscionable for us to sit by and do nothing. Expanded background checks and expanded access to mental health care could help prevent these terrifying incidents. I call on my colleagues in Congress to act. Our children should be able to go to school without fearing for their lives."
