Casey meets with locals

MEETING — Sen. Bob Casey, center, recently met with Adams County residents to discuss how gun violence has affected the Gettysburg community.

U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) recently hosted a roundtable discussion to discuss how gun violence has affected the Gettysburg community. Senator Casey was joined by board members of Gettysburg for Gun Sense, members of the Gettysburg College community and local advocates.

“We call for common sense regulations like universal background checks that are proven to save lives and supported by over 90% of Americans. We also especially support a national ‘red flag’ (or ERPO) law, proven to prevent gun suicides, which account for two thirds of U.S. gun deaths. They are the form of gun violence in Adams County, taking 11 of our citizens last year,” said Judy Young, convener of Gettysburg for Gun Sense.
