There is no silver bullet to the gun violence epidemic. The WCSO should have a robust tool box to solve various problems that result in gun violence. Ken will look to introduce more in-depth Gun Safety Courses that not only take place when you first purchase a gun, but will have to be refreshed periodically online to make sure the individual continues to practice good gun safety measures. Additionally, Ken wants to establish Youth Mentorship Programs through the WCSO that will support our at-risk youth in the community. Ken also wants an increased focus to be placed on Mental Health, as so much of the violent crime is committed by individuals suffering mental health episodes. We need to collaborate with mental health professionals and community organizations to ensure community members are taken care of and aren't a risk to others
There are plenty of more problems that need to be addressed to solve the problem of violence in our communities but these steps are actionable items that Ken plans on takin once in office.
