Statement from Orange County Supervisor Katrina Foley on the Laguna Woods Church Shooting

Orange County Supervisor Katrina Foley released the following statement in response to the tragic shooting at the Geneva Presbyterian Church in Laguna Woods.

“Churches, supermarkets, and schools must remain safe community sanctuaries that are free from fear, not places for senseless violence. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and the congregates of Geneva Presbyterian and Irvine Taiwanese Presbyterian Church, who experienced unspeakable horrors this afternoon in Laguna Woods. I applaud the immense bravery of the churchgoers who put themselves at risk to stop this murderer, but the responsibility to stop gun violence should not fall on everyday citizens. It is time for our leaders at all levels of government to address this threat.”

“I’m grateful that, in these times of crisis, our community leaders all come together and support those in need.”

  1. Dear Supervisor Foley
    While I agree that gun violence is an issue, the solution is not controlling guns, there as never been a gun that killed anyone on its own.
    The solution is identifying the mentally deranged and isolating them from society. If you take away their guns then they will use fertilizer mixed with diesel, or any other method to kill others.
    Not going to be easy, and not going to be popular, but will be necessary to maintain peace
    I’m an older citizen at 82, and have 22 years n the military so I know I come from a different background. Disarming the population sounds good, but experience in LA, NY, Chicago, and DC should show that it is a waste of time and money. Does not work
