The shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School Friday comes as Washington voters are about to decide two competing gun related ballot measures.
In fact, next week two parents who lost children in the Sandy Hook school shooting are scheduled to be in Seattle. They will campaign for Initiative 594 to expand background checks.
The background check campaign put out a statement shortly after the shooting. It said, in part: “While the facts of today’s shooting are still unclear...It is up to all of us to come together and work to reduce gun violence.”
