[PRESS RELEASE] Bishop Zubik of Pittsburgh Calls For Common Sense Gun Reform

For Immediate Release

June 24, 2016

Contact: Stephen Seufert, Keystone Catholics


In a statement released by the dioceses of Pittsburgh, Bishop David A. Zubik called for common sense gun control reforms. Bishop Zubik briefly outlined national and local examples of how gun violence is tearing apart families and communities. At one point of Bishop Zubik's statement, he correctly states, "No law has ever eliminated the crime it addresses. But laws limit damage, enable the prosecution of perpetrators and make a statement about the values of our society."

"With statements like these, Bishop Zubik is displaying the kind of leadership and wisdom more Catholics should emulate. Whether or not you agree with him, Bishop Zubik's commitment to protecting life at all stages is a testament to the strength of his faith," said Stephen Seufert, state director of Keystone Catholics. "By outlining several reform measures in which gun violence can be curtailed, Bishop Zubik is signaling a willingness to engage in the kind of encounter and dialogue Pope Francis has been championing since his papacy began. I enthusiastically applaud and wholeheartedly support Bishop Zubik and ask other Pennsylvania bishops committed to peace and social justice to join him in combating gun violence."
