Gun Violence Prevention Roundtable

ON MONDAY, July 8th, Congressman Bobby Scott (VA-03) hosted a roundtable to discuss the epidemic of gun violence. Mass shootings have taken place in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and Buckroe Beach this summer. Congressman Scott convened elected officials, gun violence experts, and other community stakeholders. This roundtable was in advance of the special session of the General Assembly that Governor Northam has called to discuss evidence-based solutions to stemming gun violence. The roundtable explored what experts have recommended, what the U.S. House of Representatives has done, and what can be done in Virginia.
