CalMatters Commentary: Here are 263 reasons to support this gun safety bill. But one is enough

By Laura Friedman

 

On a Monday in February 2015, 13 year-old Rashawn Harris, known to his family as Ray Ray, told his father, Willis Harris, that he was on his way to school and that he loved him.

He stepped out of the front door of his parents’ South Stockton home. There, as he waited in his own driveway for his ride to school, Ray Ray was gunned down.

His father rushed out to find his son laying on the ground. Willis held his son in his arms as neighbors gathered along the street. It would be their last moment together as Rashawn Harris lost his life due to the .40 caliber bullets of a semiautomatic pistol.

In the ensuing investigation, it was found that the murder weapon belonged to former Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva.
