Few know the deeply personal effects of a mass shooting like Tom Sullivan, whose son, Alex, was killed in the 2012 Aurora theater shooting. Sullivan began pushing for gun violence prevention and gun control legislation in the wake of Alex’s murder. In 2018, he ran to be a state representative and won, taking his message to the Colorado Capitol each day. He’s now running to be a state senator.
Political reporter Jesse Paul interviewed Sullivan, a Centennial Democrat, on Wednesday about what the families affected by the mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, can expect in the coming weeks and months, as well as the state of the push for more regulations around firearms.
