Irvine, Calif. — TODAY, Dave Min, UC Irvine law professor and candidate for California’s 37th State Senate District, released a comprehensive policy plan designed to address gun violence in Orange County and across the state.
“We cannot afford to be silent when it comes to the safety of our children and our communities,” said Dave Min. “I know from talking to gun violence survivors that while they welcome our thoughts and prayers, what they are desperately seeking is bold and thoughtful action from our political leaders to meaningfully reduce gun violence in our places of worship, our schools, our community gathering places, and our neighborhoods. Enough is enough. I am proud to announce a comprehensive and bold set of policies to keep our communities safe from the plague of gun violence, including banning gun sales on government property, strengthening and improving our state’s red flag laws and implementing efforts to ensure the safe storage of guns. It is long past time that we do something, and I promise that I will introduce these and other proposals to reduce gun violence within my first 100 days in the State Senate.”‘
