Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel Issues Statement on Colorado Shootings

July 23, 2012
I am deeply saddened once again by the tragedy that occurred in the Colorado movie theatre. At this moment it is believed that 13 people have been killed and up to 50 people wounded. I cant help being reminded of Columbine which also happened in the State of Colorado. Elected officials on the State, local and Federal levels must recognize that they are at a crossroad gun violence is an epidemic in the United States which is killing citizens in unprecedented numbers. I urge all elected officials to come up with their plan on gun control once and for all to protect our citizens.
