CWALAC CEO and President Penny Nance Calls for Less Focus on Gun Control and More Focus on Who Controls the Guns

CWALAC CEO and President Penny Nance Calls for Less Focus on Gun Control and More Focus on Who Controls the Guns
By: CWALAC Staff - 1/11/2013

Nance: “Shouldn’t we have more input from groups who represent those with mental illness?”

Washington D.C. – Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) CEO and President Penny Nance has issued the following statement regarding Vice President Biden’s meetings to discuss gun control:

“Today, as the Vice President meets to discuss gun control, I can’t help but wonder why parents’ groups haven’t been invited to the table? As the President of the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, I would be happy to represent over 500,000 women worried about the security of their most precious possession, their children and the ability to protect them. One in 10 women has already made a choice about protecting their children and has chosen to own a gun (CNN).

“Shouldn’t Parents’ Television Council, who works tirelessly to protect our children from the glorified violence in media, have a seat at Vice President Biden’s table as well? Shouldn’t we have more input from groups who represent those with mental illness? National Association on Mental Illness should have a say, given that the shooters in Sandy Hook, Aurora, and Columbine all exhibited signs of mental illness. Vice President Biden needs to pull up a few more chairs and bring all concerned to the table focusing less on gun control and focusing more on those who control the guns.”
