ENDING GUN VIOLENCE

"Violence isn't a Democrat or Republican problem.
It's an American problem, requiring an American
solution."

 

ENDING GUN VIOLENCE

Government

Gun violence claims the lives of thousands of Americans every year. Despite outcry following mass shootings, little seems to ever be done to save American lives.


Dr. Stokes knows it's time for change. As a child in Las Vegas, he and his mother were stalked by a man with a gun. One of his acquaintances was grazed by a bullet in a drive-by shooting outside their elementary school. DaShanne frequently found bullet casings on the ground at his elementary school and around his neighborhood. Dr. Stokes was in one of the buildings locked down during the 2012 Western Psychiatric shooting. He also had family in Las Vegas at the time of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting. This madness needs to end.
