CLACKAMAS, Ore. – It’s been six years since a gunman opened fire in the Clackamas Town Center, killing two people and injuring a third.

On December 11, 2012, Cindy Yuille and Steven Forsyth were shot and killed, while Kristina Shevchenko was injured by someone armed with an AR-15.

Authorities said the shooter, Jacob Tyler Roberts, took the gun from someone he knew. He killed himself after the incident.

A new group led by Yuille’s daughter, Jenna, is using the painful occasion to push for stronger gun restrictions.

State Of Safety held a news conference Tuesday at the Portland Teachers Association meeting. Among the specific changes the group wants to see a law similar to legislation passed in Washington that requires gun owners to safely store their weapons.

A similar bill will be up for consideration next year in Oregon.
