The League of Women Voters of the Charlottesville Area is holding a Sunday Seminar on firearm safety, entitled “When is Enough Enough?" As firearm deaths increase nationwide – 1,000 lives were lost in Virginia alone last year – public sentiment in support of new firearm safety laws is growing. Yet, the 2019 Virginia General Assembly failed to pass 36 proposed bills aimed at keeping Virginia citizens safer from gun violence. Why is this the case and what can be done about it? This seminar will examine the history of gun violence in America, how we got to where we are, and momentum for future change.
Featured speakers are:
The League of Women Voters works to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy. This Sunday Seminar will be held at CitySpace on the Downtown Mall from 2 to 3:30 pm and is open and free to the public.
