Mayor Mark Farrell on the Shooting at the YouTube Campus in San Bruno
The shooting today at the YouTube campus is the latest in a string of tragedies. Our hearts are with our neighbors in San Bruno and we are sending our deepest sympathies to everyone affected by this incident.
Gun violence is tearing apart our communities. We cannot grow numb to these terrible acts. Republicans in Congress must pass meaningful gun control and safety policies. We know that these changes would reduce gun violence and save lives.
The time for more common sense gun safety and control policies has long since passed. There have been nearly 60 mass shootings this year alone in our nation. We should demand that all of our elected leaders—especially our President—do something to respond to this national crisis.
