ACPM Statement on the Gun Violence Epidemic
In light of the tragic mass shootings over the last week, ACPM supports common-sense prevention efforts to prevent future accidental and purposeful gun injury and death. At least 32 people tragically lost their lives in the shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.
