Ting Leads Effort Calling On DOJ To Reconsider Withholding Gun Violence Data

For immediate release:

In advance of the California Department of Justice's hearing on March 11th, Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) leads the effort in asking the agency to reconsider its proposal to withhold gun violence data from researchers.

As representatives of the people of California, we rely on the best possible scientific evidence to help us fulfill our duty to serve the public’s interest. We view the draft regulations as obstructing the development of that evidence and hope that the Department will reconsider.
