Bera to Hold Gun Violence Roundtable; Jones Earns NRCC 'Young Guns' Designation

June 30, 2016 |

As a follow-up to his participation in the recent Democratic Congressional  No Buy, No Fly sit-in, Rep. Dr. Ami Bera (D -Elk Grove) will be holding a roundtable meeting tomorrow morning to discuss gun violence in Sacramento County.

According to information from his office, the discussion is described as a "conversation of gun safety in our community that began on the House floor last week following the horrendous attack in Orlando. Congressman Bera was part of the historic 26-hour sit-in on the House floor last week to demand a vote on bipartisan legislation to address gun violence."

Joining Bera will be members of the faith community, LGBT leaders, elected officials, and members from local chapters of Moms Demand Action, the Brady Campaign, and Wellspace Sacramento Violence Intervention Program. The meeting will be held at American River College, Submarine Conference Room and is scheduled to start at 11 a.m.

While Bera has announced his gun violence discussion for tomorrow, his Republican opponent for California's Seventh Congressional District, Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones, announced his candidacy received the highest importance ranking from the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).

Jones earned the NRCC's Young Guns designation for this year's election cycle. Established in the 2007-2008 cycle, among the most significant benefit the designation conveys is the financial support of the NRCC.

“I am tremendously proud to have earned the recognition as an NRCC Young Gun,” Jones said.
