JAC Statement on Another Mass Shooting 11-23-2022
Today our nation is faced with another mass shooting in America — the second in three days and the third in nine days. As families around the country begin their Thanksgiving celebrations, the lives of these families have been ripped apart, their hearts broken in ways that can never heal.
Our nation experiences mass shootings on a nearly weekly basis. We do not accept that nothing can be done. Something can — and must — be done. Other countries have figured out a way to make their communities safe from gun violence. We must find the common ground, despite our political differences, to save lives.
JAC will continue to work to elect candidates who will make gun violence prevention a top priority. We were successful in the Midterm election in sending new candidates to Congress who are committed to gun violence prevention. But we need even more voices and votes in Congress. Elections have consequences.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all victims and families as we continue to work towards ending gun violence with an even greater sense of purpose.
