Actions taken since Arizona’s last mass shooting

In 2011, six people were killed and 13 wounded in a mass shooting in Tucson. It was not Arizona’s worst mass shooting. Nine monks were killed in a temple near Phoenix in 1991. Since the 2011 shooting that wounded former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, action has been taken to mitigate gun violence in our state, including several pieces of legislation.

After the 2011 shooting, the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission formally established a NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System) Task Force. NICS is a national computerized system that checks available records on persons who may be disqualified from receiving firearms.

We’ll hear more about efforts to curb gun violence in our state from Andy LeFevre, executive director of the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission.
