As the father of a child who was shot and killed in Newtown, Conn., Mark Mattioli does not believe more gun laws will solve the problem. While speaking at a state hearing on gun control, he instead advocated for stronger enforcement of existing laws and personal responsibility.
“I don’t think the gun laws are protecting the people,” the grieving father said. “What have those gun laws done to make Chicago a safer city?”
From Fox News:
Heartbreaking highlights in the video below show Mattioli remarking that he believes there’s more “promise for a solution” in identifying and researching in the area of mental health. He also said that the issue of gun violence and others are not necessarily “as complex as you’ve been told.”
“I believe the solution may not be as easy to implement as I might hope, but it’s a simple concept,” he said. “We need civility across our nation. What we’re seeing are symptoms of a bigger problem. This is a symptom. The problem is not gun laws. The problem is a lack of civility.”
