    Exclamation Gov. Wolf: Special Council on Gun Violence to Host Hearings

    Gov. Wolf: Special Council on Gun Violence to Host Hearings

    https://www.governor.pa.gov/newsroom...GkFXj-4CXCrxNE

    Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf announced today that his Special Council on Gun Violence, created as part of an executive order he signed in August and tasked with studying and making recommendations to prevent and reduce gun violence, will host a series of five hearings to inform the council and community members in attendance. The Council members were announced in late September with the first meeting held on Oct. 9.

    “These five hearings will help inform the work of the council and let the public hear from experts on topics pertinent to making all Pennsylvanians safer, whether they live in a city or a rural area,” Gov. Wolf said. “Thank you to the Council and the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency for their ongoing efforts to address the public health crisis of gun violence in Pennsylvania.”

    Dates and times, locations and focus of topic for each hearing include:

    *Regional Hearing – Reducing Likelihood of Accidental Shootings
    Friday, November 15, 2019 – 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. – Lemmond Theater, Misericordia University, 301 Lake Street, Dallas, PA

    *Regional Hearing – Combating Mass Shootings
    Thursday, November 21, 2019 – 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. – William Pitt Union, University of Pittsburgh, 3959 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA

    *Regional Hearing – Preventing Suicide by Firearms
    Friday, November 22, 2019 – 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. – Board Room, York City School District Administration Building, 31 N. Pershing Avenue, York, PA

    *Regional Hearing – Preventing Domestic Violence-Related Shootings
    Monday, November 25, 2019 – 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. – Bennett Pierce Living Center, 110 Henderson, Pennsylvania State University, State College, PA

    *Regional Hearing – Reducing Community Gun Violence
    Thursday, December 5, 2019 – 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. – Temple University, 1801 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA

    All hearings are open to the public as listening sessions. Audience members may provide feedback to the Council directly through a written survey at the listening session, or may provide their ideas and comments via an Online Public Comment Survey. Video recordings of the hearings, agendas and other information about the Special Council will also be posted on the www.pccd.pa.gov website.

    “These hearings are designed to gather information from experts on every facet of gun violence that the Executive Order asked us to address,” PCCD Chairman Charles Ramsey said. “Since gun violence touches everyone in the Commonwealth, the online public comment survey is also a key component in gathering the public’s feedback. The more thoughts and perspectives we have on this issue, the better.”

    So, are domestic violence and suicides by means other than guns OK or something?

    You need a gun to be safe attending the Philadelphia meeting at Temple.

    somebody should tell them overall gun violence statistics show that the rates are declining in accordance with Stand your ground, Castle doctrine and right to carry laws enacted. Some correlation?

    Exactly!

    I'd go to the York one...but I'm not taking half a day off at my expense to go sit in a scripted gun control meeting I'm not allowed to speak at.

    Out of the Governor's context, they sound like good discussion topics. It's pretty safe to say that a true debate will not be allowed to occur there.
