Press Release

Walnut Grove, CA—Today, Congressman John Garamendi (D-Fairfield, Davis, Yuba City) issued the following statement in recognition of the 19th Anniversary of the Columbine Shooting and the National School Walkout:

“Today, on the 19th anniversary of the Columbine Shooting, thousands of students across the country will walk out in a show of unity and strength against the gun violence epidemic in America. Our hearts are heavy today for all of the victims and survivors of Columbine, and the best way we can honor them as lawmakers is to come together and pass commonsense gun safety reforms that an overwhelming number of Americans support. Solutions like universal background checks, prohibiting the sale of assault-style rifles, and no fly no buy can help reduce gun violence without undermining the Second Amendment. I pray that Congress will gain the courage to act in solidarity with every victim of gun violence in America.”
