“We have a public health crisis” with gun violence

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Gun Violence Prevention Task Force Vice President Lucy McBath (D-GA) in the home argued that people would go to the polls halfway through 2022 on the issue of gun violence, “Because we have a public health crisis here.

McBath said: “My number one political agenda in my very first campaign was gun violence prevention, gun safety. And then again, here we are, even in this election, people know me specifically for my work on gun safety, gun violence prevention. And I can assure you that there will be many more people going to the polls this fall, and it will be a policy for them to go to the polls on. Because we have a public health crisis here. And, you know, on Tuesday I was standing on the podium after being re-elected, and the solemn irony didn’t escape me that, on the same day, Georgia sent me back, a mother on a mission, back to the Congress to help keep our children and families safe was the same day that 19 children and two teachers were shot for no reason. And again and again we continue to see these tragedies.
