Hot Topics – Gun Safety
Register in advance for this meeting:
Gun sales will increase with an election or a mass shooting, but now they have soared with the pandemic, George Floyd protests and the assault on the Capitol. How do we keep our children and communities safe from unintentional gun violence? Hear from experts about the scope of this problem, in general and also specifically in Manatee County. Community leaders will talk about common sense solutions they have enacted to reduce these risks and what more can be done.
We are pleased to have as speakers:
Carol Rescigno, President of Brady United Against Gun Violence of Sarasota Manatee
Manatee County Sheriff Rick Wells
Barbara Markely, LWV Broward County, Lock It Up! Program
Katie Hathaway, Jacksonville Moms Demand Action, Be SMART
