"We need to treat gun violence like the crisis it is," said Governor Newsom. "We are past the tipping point. We need Washington to spare us the empty rhetoric, listen and take meaningful action. Lives are literally on the line.""Putting an end to the gun violence epidemic is not a Republican or Democratic issue, it is an American issue," reads the letter from the Governors. "Gun deaths do not have to be the norm. The time is now to break the cycle by enacting four common-sense measures."
