Capps to speak out about Isla Vista rampage
July 7, 2014
Congresswoman Lois Capps is collaborating with several local and state officials to discuss action taking place in response to the May Isla Vista shooting and stabbing rampage that left seven college students dead.
Capps is hosting a press conference at 11 a.m. Monday at Walter Capps Park in Isla Vista. Attendees will include State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, Assemblyman Das Williams and Santa Barbara County Supervisor Dorreen Farr and District Attorney Joyce Dudley. UCSB student representatives will also participate.
Both Capps and Jackson have introduced new gun control bills in response to May’s rampage.
“We have joined together in a powerful way to say that not one more act should be tolerated,” Capps said in a press release. “From student leaders to local, state and federal officials, we need to continue working together on common sense, reasonable solutions to combat violence in our community and our nation.”
