Students Support Gun Safety Resolution
Newtown Township Board of Supervisors Meeting, June 13, 2018
Council Rock High School students comment in favor of a gun safety resolution before the Newtown Township Board of Supervisors June 13, 2018, public meeting.
After comments from the public, the Newtown Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 (Kyle Davis voting “nay”) to pass a non-binding “gun safety” resolution. This is the same resolution passed by other municipalities, including Yardley Borough.
The resolution (here) states that as many as 116,225 people are shot each year in America, and that 35,141 people die from gun violence in “murders, assaults, suicides, suicide attempts, unintentional shootings or by police interventions.”
