Press Release

Walnut Creek, CA – Today, Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11) announced that he and Congressman Mike Thompson (CA-5) will host a town hall to continue a national discussion on gun violence next Saturday, February 9th at 2:00 p.m. in Martinez. 

Senseless acts of gun violence continue to devastate communities across the country, especially after years of inaction by Congressional Republicans. Now in the Majority, Democrats are committed to making our families, schools, and communities safer.

During the town hall, Representatives DeSaulnier and Thompson will discuss commonsense solutions to fight the gun violence epidemic, like the Bipartisan Background Checks Act (H.R. 8), which would improve and expand the use background checks. Constituents will also have an opportunity to ask questions and share their thoughts.
