Today is National Gun Violence Awareness Day.
Yesterday's shooting at UCLA, which left two people dead, is just the most recent incident of the American epidemic of gun violence.
This issue did not start or end in Aurora or Columbine-- it's pervasive and seemingly out of control in the U.S., because so many are afraid to stand up to the opposition.
I was endorsed by Colorado Ceasefire in this race, and I'm proud to wear orange today in order to join our friends and neighbors in standing up against gun violence.
This afternoon I will be participating in a neighborhood Block Party at Union Station to talk about this epidemic, and learn from other leaders on this issue. Together, we can make an impact and reverse the trend of unnecessary and senseless gun violence.
