Hip Hop Caucus Statement on Mass Shooting in Half Moon Bay and Oakland, California

Once again a California community has been torn apart by a gunman, just days after the mass shooting in Monterey Park. Our sincerest condolences are with the families, friends, colleagues, neighbors and loved ones of those killed. Gun reform and the Second Amendment can co-exist. It is imperative for Congress to prioritize gun reform legislation, strengthening current laws, closing existing loopholes and banning assault weapons. As we mourn the victims of this horrific tragedy, we will continue to advocate for real, policy-based solutions.
