Group pushes for gun restrictions on anniversary of Clackamas Town Center shooting
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.
