Miami “ October 21, 2014

Miami Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle is leading two important panel discussions at the Prosecutors Against Gun Violence” national meeting today in Atlanta.

The group was formed to address the issue of gun violence in the United States as concerns mount over shootings and mass killings. Members include attorneys from several major metropolitan jurisdictions including Miami, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Chicago, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Seattle, Houston and Milwaukee. The non-partisan coalition will focus on issues such as reducing gang violence, weapons trafficking, the connection between domestic violence and gun violence, and the link between mental illness and gun violence.

State Attorney Fernandez Rundle will head two panels, one focused on among other things, the trafficking of firearms and the enhancements that punish individuals for committing crimes while using a firearm. The second panel will focus on interventions in preventing mass shooting by persons who have mental health issues at which she will lead the discussion and highlight Miami Dade`s successful police Crisis Intervention Training (CIT).

Gun violence plagues every jurisdiction in America, said State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle. This Summit is an effort to take ideas that have worked in different parts of the country and by sharing experiences and techniques, spread that success around. In this way, we can make a real difference.
