CONGRESSMAN DANNY K. DAVIS STATEMENT ON THE LOSS OF COMMANDER PAUL BAUER

We join in mourning the loss of Commander Paul Bauer who was killed in the line of duty yesterday.  Commander Bauer, who interacted regularly with our office, was an outstanding officer with a heart for the community.  He was also a husband and dad with a 13 year old daughter. Scarcely a week goes by when I do not hear from constituents about the senseless loss of a loved one due to gun violence.  Tragically, for the most part, the names and lives of those who perish as a result of senseless gun violence remain largely unknown outside of their family and friends.  There is no way to comprehend the true cost, and the enduring pain resulting from this epidemic of gun violence.  It is long past time to get these guns off the street!
