A United States senator will meet with those impacted by gun violence as he calls for action to be taken to curb gun attacks in America.
U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-Pa.) will host an expert panel at Temple University School of Medicine in North Philadelphia at 10:30 a.m. Monday.
The goal of the round table event is "to hear from experts and families impacted by gun violence and explore how Congress can take commonsense steps to combat this problem and keep our communities safe," said a new release from the Casey camp.
Casey -- a two-term Democrat -- says his view of guns changed following the 2012 massacre of more than two dozen children and teachers at Sandy Hook elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
