Congressman Scott Peters addressed group, and we wrote postcards to Mitch
The September meeting of SD4GVP saw record attendance, as more San Diegans are joining the cause to end gun violence in America. We were joined by Congressman Scott Peters, who has been a loud voice in Congress for gun violence prevention. We also collectively wrote postcards to Mitch McConnell, asking him to finally take up the gun safety bills in the Senate that were passed in the House earlier this year.
San Diegans for Gun Violence Prevention were at the Padres-Red Sox game on August 25, 2019, where we had some good conversations with the fans. It was estimated that 40,000 people attended the game – roughly the same number of Americans that we lose every year to gun violence. That’s a stadium full of Americans every year.
