Violence Policy Center Statement on Shooting in San Bernardino, California

Washington, DC — Following today’s shooting at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California, where according to authorities at least 14 have been killed and 14 injured, Violence Policy Center Executive Director Josh Sugarmann made the following statement:

“Today, yet another mass shooting has occurred, this time at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California. While the total number of those killed and injured is not yet known, it is all too clear that one more mass shooting has been added to our nation’s ongoing, horrific toll of such attacks. None of us want to live in a country where public mass shootings are routine. Yet thanks to the NRA, its financial patrons in the gun industry, and callous policymakers who block any conceivable new policy to reduce such attacks, this is the country we now live in. While we are awaiting further details on this latest tragedy, we already know this national crisis will not end until our elected officials take action.”
