U.S. Rep. Lacy Clay: We've Reached A 'Tipping Point' On Gun Violence

More than a dozen children have died from gun violence in St. Louis this year. The spike in incidents was at the heart of a town hall meeting at Harris-Stowe State University on Wednesday night.

The Board of Aldermen black caucus and U.S. Rep. Lacy Clay, D-University City, called for immediate action from the federal level to combat gun violence against children.

“Gun violence is a public health emergency,” Clay said.

About 500 people attended the event, including community members, St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson, members of the St. Louis region’s NAACP chapters, local organizations for mothers, human rights groups, government officials and law enforcement agents.
