Comprehensive Strategy on Guns and Violence
Gun violence is on the rise in many of our cities today, and illegal gun trafficking from neighboring states is a big part of that problem. We need coordination and cooperation on both prosecution and prevention initiatives. Federal, state and local law enforcement from Massachusetts and neighboring states, community leaders, clergy, youth workers - everyone has to be a part of the solution.
We understood when Black churches were being attacked in the South how important it was to bring together the folks who could address every aspect of the problem. Today we face a growing threat in this region and need a similar multi-pronged response.
