DeSaulnier hosting virtual town hall on 'Solving America's Gun Problem'

Special guests include Contra Costa DA Becton

Local U.S. Rep. Mark DeSaulnier (D-Concord) is reaching out to talk with his constituents about gun violence in America and has invited residents to view his 125th town hall event, entitled "Solving America's Gun Problem."

Set to be hosted virtually on Thursday (Feb. 25), DeSaulnier will be joined by a series of special guests to talk about the ongoing gun problem in America and how local, regional and national officials are working to help solve it.

"(DeSaulnier) announced that in the wake of the attack on the U.S. Capitol, attempts by members of Congress to bring guns on the U.S. House Floor, and a sitting member of Congress denying the reality of the Sandy Hook and Parkland shootings, he will host a virtual town hall meeting on the state of gun violence prevention in America and Contra Costa," staff from the four-term congressman's office said in a statement.

During the virtual town hall, DeSaulnier will be joined by a panel of special guests, including Contra Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton; Michelle Sinnott with Diablo Valley Moms Demand Action; Amanda Wilcox of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence; Dr. Garen J. Wintemute with UC Davis Violence Prevention Program; and Sam Vaughn with the Office of Neighborhood Safety in Richmond.

This will be DeSaulnier's 125 town hall and mobile district office event since first being elected to congress in 2014.
