Another Tragic Event
Just within the past few days another mass shooting with multiple people, young and old, killed and injured in a setting that the victims certainly had no reason to be fearful or cautious of. Similar to where other shootings and carnage have taken place. As visible as these tragedies become there are also smaller scale tragedies occurring everyday in this country. And what we know is there is no place in our country that can declare immunity from a future such incident, as these are occurring in our rural, inner city and suburban areas alike.
Speaking on the shooting in Oregon, President Obama said, “We are not the only country on Earth that has people with mental illnesses or want to do harm to other people. We are the only advanced country on Earth that sees these kinds of mass shootings every few months.”
Focusing our attention on San Mateo County, I would be very interested in receiving your comments on what we can and should be doing to ensure that these types of events, regardless of whether they involve multiple or singular victims, are prevented.
I look forward to hearing from you.
