Assemblymember Kevin McCarty’s statement on the Downtown Sacramento shooting

For immediate release:

SACRAMENTO - It’s heartbreaking to learn about the senseless shooting that killed 6 people and injured 12 others right here in my district and hometown. 

While we don’t have all the facts yet, this is just another horrible and senseless reminder of the need to stem the flow of illegal guns and keep firearms out of the hands of those who shouldn’t have them. 

I will continue to push smart gun laws to keep Californians safe from gun violence--including two bills I'm pursuing this year.

I also thank the Sacramento Police Department and Fire Department for their work around the clock.

Lastly, we will find the suspects and hold them fully accountable for the brazen murders that took at least 6 lives.
