Chief Joins Former Congresswoman Gifffords to Combat Gun Violence

Chief Harteau was honored and proud to join former Congresswoman Gabby Gifffords and her esteemed panel for a Domestic Violence Awareness Summit sponsored by the ARS (Americans for Responsible Solutions) Women’s Coalition for Common Sense. More than 200 women joined them in Washington DC as the group seeks to find commonsense solutions that will protect women, families and communities from gun violence and keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. A few facts from ARS: 1) Women and children in the U.S. are 11 times more likely to be killed by a gun than women and children in other similarly developed countries. 2) A woman is murdered with a gun in the U.S. every 5 hours.
