WASHINGTON, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Paul Helmke – former President & CEO of the Brady Campaign/Center to Prevent Gun Violence, former Republican Mayor of Fort Wayne, IN, former GOP nominee for U.S. Senate and currently a professor at Indiana University's School of Public and Environmental Affairs – will address the political impasse over national efforts to reduce gun violence at a National Press Club Newsmakers news conference on Friday, October 18.
After the Newtown massacre last December, many expected some progress at the national level on efforts to reduce gun violence. In April, however, the U.S. Senate failed to advance any legislation on guns. Even with the recent shootings at the Washington Navy Yard, most now see little chance for change on this issue. Helmke will discuss some specific proposals intended to break the impasse on this controversial issue.
This National Press Club Newsmaker event is scheduled for Friday, October 18 at 2 pm in the club's Zenger Room on the 13th Floor of the National Press Building at 529 14th Street NW, Washington, DC 20045.
