Santa Clara Community Summit on Firearms and Safety
Santa Clara County Fairgrounds – Fiesta Hall
8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Like past firearms summits, this will probably attract and support the Machiavellian gun control people intent on banning firearms and severely limiting our Second Amendment rights.
We do have the opportunity of joining discussion groups and presenting ideas to reduce gun violence like mental health treatment & reporting, securing schools by screening access, trained & armed resource officers, metal detectors and other solutions.
We urge you to attend this summit! Dress in business casual – no BDUs or camouflage, please. Check back here for talking points or see us at the meeting. We advise you to arrive early!

Santa Clara Supervisor Dave Cortese is sponsoring this summit. A continental breakfast and a box lunch will be provided to all. More information from Supervisor Cortese’s office:
Entry and parking are free, and a continental breakfast and boxed lunch will be provided. We will have translators for those who wish to participate in a language other than English.
This is not a townhall meeting! Participants will be expected to roll up their sleeves and begin working together in professionally facilitated roundtable discussions from beginning to end.
The event will be hosted by my office and the County of Santa Clara, with support from key partners from different perspectives on firearms and safety. We hope to draw a diverse array of participants, viewpoints and ideas in order to have a balanced dialogue. We’ll cover a broad spectrum of topics, from gang violence prevention to school safety, from suicide prevention to legal rights and duties of residents – wherever they stand on firearms related issues, and lots more. Participants will be asked to commit to engaging in civil discourse about difficult issues. A final report of the findings and recommendations may be shared with the Board of Supervisors at a later date, and will be shared with our community at large. We will be able to incorporate many ideas into the report, and all opinions will be shared with other communities throughout the County and beyond.
