US Bishops and Gun Control

Since 1994, the United States Bishops have offered a consistent message on gun violence and gun control.  Through their spokesperson, the Bishops offered the following statement after the murders at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, TX:

“There have been too many school shootings, too much killing of the innocent. Our Catholic faith calls us to pray for those who have died and to bind the wounds of others, and we join our prayers along with the community in Uvalde and Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller. As we do so, each of us also needs to search our souls for ways that we can do more to understand this epidemic of evil and violence and implore our elected officials to help us take action.”
