In January 2013, Congresswoman Speier was appointed to serve as a Vice Chair of a new congressional Gun Violence Prevention Task Force that is investigating new steps that Congress can take now, and n the future, to reduce gun violence and prevent massacres like the shootings that happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Ct.
