Guns Down America Statement on Buffalo Mass Shooting

May 15, 2022

Washington, D.C. -- Guns Down America Executive Director Igor Volsky released the following statement on the mass shooting in Buffalo that is being investigated as a hate crime driven by white supremacy.

“President Biden was right to say after Buffalo that we must tackle domestic terrorism that is driven by hate, but we won’t get there by ignoring the obvious. We have too many guns and they are too easy to get in this country. There have been more than 800 mass shootings since President Biden took office and we still do not have an office of gun violence prevention, nor a plan to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines from this administration.”
