STATEMENT: Treasurer Summers’ Statement on President Obama’s Executive Actions to Reduce Gun Violence

Chicago City Treasurer Kurt Summers today released the following statement regarding President Obama’s executive actions to reduce gun violence:

I thank President Obama for his decisive action to reduce gun violence and restore peace to our streets. As Chicago grapples with closing out a year of extreme gun violence, our city is in need of solutions and real investment in our people and in our communities. The President’s common sense steps will make our neighborhoods and our nation safer. When it comes to innocent people losing their lives due to gun violence, we can no longer tolerate the failure of Congress to do the right thing for our future generations. In Chicago, we are faced with the urgency for change and I commend President Obama for his leadership and taking a stand to end these senseless tragedies.
