The Westchester County District Attorney's Office will host a virtual forum discussing “Gun Safety in Our Community” on Monday, July 18 at 4 p.m. The free Zoom webinar, open to the public, will be an informational session on what tools are available in the fight against gun violence and how we can keep our communities safe.
Guests will hear from District Attorney Mimi Rocah, members of the DA’s Office, and gun sense advocacy group Moms Demand Action about New York’s recently-expanded Red Flag laws, Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs), the WCDAO’s Safe Storage Program, ghost guns and what the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down aspects of New York’s concealed carry law means. There will also be a Q&A portion.
“Our collaboration with the community on gun safety education is more important than ever,” DA Rocah said. “We highly encourage community centers, faith-based groups, PTAs, neighborhood associations, parents, educators and caretakers to join us for this timely discussion.”
“Enlisting the help of our local communities will save lives,” said Katherine Schowalter, Local Group Leader Westchester for Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. “Sharing valuable tools and information with the public on gun safety measures and Red Flag laws empower and strengthen our fight against gun violence.”
