In the wake of the recent tragedy in Newtown, CT, No Labels supports the task force against mass violence put forth by the president earlier today and the idea of a national commission as a follow-up encouraged by Sen. Joe Lieberman, among others. It is essential to take this first step of starting a serious conversation about mass violence in America in order to find the solutions our country so desperately needs.
“We need to jump-start an urgent national conversation about mass violence,” No Labels Co-Founder Bill Galston says. “We need to change a status quo that is producing too many acts of mass violence -- and this task force provides a venue to do just that. It is essential that all relevant parties come to the table to talk solutions.”
“This is an issue that can’t wait,” No Labels Co-Founder Mark McKinnon says. “The events in Newtown, Aurora, and across the country demand an urgent response from Washington and require all voices at the table. We look forward to hearing the National Rifle Association's ideas for possible paths forward Friday and hope leaders from all points of view can come together for our country. There are no easy answers here, but we owe it to our kids to do everything we can to find them.”
