VALLEJO (KCBS) – An overflow crowd at Vallejo City Hall Wednesday night debated the future of gun rights in America at a town hall style meeting called by the North Bay Congressman leading the House effort on gun control legislation.
Rep. Mike Thompson said he would present ideas from this forum and others planned around the Bay Area when the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force formed after the Newton, Connecticut shootings convenes in Washington DC.
“Just since that tragedy in Connecticut, over 800 people have been killed in the United States of America with firearms,” he said. “We’ve got to do what we need to do to make sure that we stem gun violence, and we need to do it in a comprehensive manner.”
