“We don’t have a gun problem; we have a sick culture that glorifies violence.”￼
(IRVINE, CA) – Jenny Rae Le Roux called out the politicization of the horrific May 24 Uvalde shooting in a scathing statement, saying that politicians and the media are sowing hate and dividing the country while ignoring the root causes of mass shootings.
Specifically, Gavin Newsom announced a California gun buyback program that is pure political theater – it will only remove guns from law-abiding citizens while leaving the criminals alone.
“The root cause of gun violence isn’t guns”, she stated. “It’s violence, and we have all glorified a culture of violence – in video games, movies, and even the way we talk about politics. Until we change our sick culture, we will never solve the mass shooting crisis.”
Le Roux calls for a solution aimed at the root causes to the epidemic of violence in our communities, including:
- Restrict access to violent video games for minors
- Age-gate social media platforms, often used for bullying
- Fully fund extracurricular activities in low-income middle and high schools
- Add one licensed therapist to every school in CA
“One California school administrator told me that her middle schoolers were opting out of softball because they didn’t have $40 for a mitt. We need to step up for our kids by ensuring every child can take part in extracurricular activities. A sense of belonging and community will reduce violent tendencies in our youth, and will reduce not just gun violence but also suicide and crime,” Le Roux continued.
Le Roux’s campaign is focused on common sense solutions to restore the California dream and improve the quality of life for every Californian.
