Walnut Creek, CA Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11) and Congressman Mike Thompson (CA-5) will host a town hall to continue a national discussion on gun violence next Saturday, February 9th at 2:00 p.m. in Martinez. 

Senseless acts of gun violence continue to devastate communities across the country, especially after years of inaction by Congressional Republicans. Now in the Majority, Democrats are committed to making our families, schools, and communities safer.

During the town hall, Representatives DeSaulnier and Thompson will discuss commonsense solutions to fight the gun violence epidemic, like the Bipartisan Background Checks Act (H.R. 8), which would improve and expand the use background checks. Constituents will also have an opportunity to ask questions and share their thoughts.

  1. You can make all the laws in the world regarding guns. It will never change the fact that when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have them. Let’s work on value of life for these young people. They have no respect for life. What about all the violence on TV, video games, and movies? Oh no , those movie stars are far left politicos and it’s ok to show death and destruction. They are political donators so they are protected. Hypocrites are a dime a dozen. There are a lot more areas to curb gun violence than gun laws. It’s way to late for gun eradication. Education is the key. That’s where politicians fail on this subject.

    • It’s not the movie stars (actors) who are the culprits, although their decision to accept a role is their own doing. The people we need to go for are the PRODUCERS! The producer is the one who comes up with a story, hires a screen writer, secures the funding for the project and then hires a director . . who picks the actors.

      When there was a studio system, films didn’t portray much violence because the studio boss dictated what can or cannot be shown. After the demise of this system, the “independents” pretty much have a field day and anything goes. The more violent, the better!

  2. Are you going to stop coddling criminals and finally punish those who break the law, or are just going to keep drawing from the Feinstein playbook and go after law abiding citizens?

    Reread your constitution mark…”shall not be infringed….”

  3. Want to stop gun violence? East! Just get rid of the scum which has made our neighborhoods their home!
