Reducing Gun Violence: Ask the Vice President Your Questions

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

The massacre in Newtown, Conn., shook us all and sparked a renewed national discussion about how to protect innocent Americans, especially our children, from the horrors of gun violence. Parents is honored to be holding a Facebook town hall on Tuesday with one of the leaders of that national debate, Vice President Joe Biden. The Vice President will be answering questions submitted in advance by you, our readers and Facebook fans.

Whatever your politics, this is a chance to engage in discussion with one of the leaders who is shaping the Administration’s policies on guns. We may all have different opinions on how to reduce violence, but let’s keep the discussion thoughtful, civil, and focused on the question of how best to prevent more senseless deaths. Submit your questions now on our Facebook page or in the comment section below, and we will ask the Vice President as many we can on Tuesday.

And, of course, watch the virtual town hall event live at 3:30 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, Feb. 19, to hear Vice President Biden’s answers to your questions.
