ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC)- Congressman Joe Morelle held a town hall gathering in Rochester on Wednesday at Mount Olivet Baptist Church on gun violence.
He said it was important to hear people's frustrations and their suggestions on how to address gun violence on both a local and national level.
"Universal background checks, which we've been really trying to get done in Congress, are supported by a vast majority of people in this community," he said.
"Those are the things that will help make sure people with access to firearms, access to rifles and guns are appropriate."
This was Morelle's second in a series of community town halls on gun violence and other topics.
