Earlier today, Vice President Joe Biden joined several U.S. mayors in a Google Hangout focused on gun violence. The participants included Gary, Ind. Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and Oak Creek, Wis. Mayor Steve Scaffidi.
“I was honored to be selected to participate in this critical conversation,” said Freeman-Wilson. “Although the proposed measures did not pass today, I’d like to thank Sen. Donnelly for standing with the victims of gun violence in Indiana. Background checks are common sense. Vote people not partisanship.”
In the link below, Freeman-Wilson refers to a double funeral she recently attended as a result of gun violence and the importance of ensuring that guns don't land in the wrong hands.

Earlier this week, Freeman-Wilson traveled to D.C. representing Mayors Against Illegal Guns. She spoke with Indiana legislators and joined individuals from all over the U.S. on Capitol Hill in memory of Virginia Tech victims. Freeman-Wilson participated by reading several of the victims’ names, who were all victims of gun violence.
