Sadly, gun violence has become an epidemic in the Inland Empire. As your Assemblymember, I will write "common sense" gun laws and work with law enforcement and our community to help end the violence.
At the Inland Regional Center, AR-15 rifles were used to murder fourteen people and seriously injure twenty-two. It took only four minutes.
They were purchased legally and were easily modified into assault rifles.
When thinking of common sense gun laws, I think of my client George who at 16 was shot and rendered a quadriplegic. George now requires 24-hour attendant care, but has graduated from high school and community college. Because of George's nomination, I humbly accepted the 2013 "Community Hero Against Gun Violence" Award.
