where he also says: "Thank God that someone finally has the courage to close the loopholes in our pitiful gun control laws to reduce the number of mass shootings, suicides and killings that have become a plague in our country."

Then on June 23, 2016 PIttsburgh's Bishop David Zubick, a member of the Pennsylvania Catholic Conference, published an excellent statement about the need for gun control. It can be found at:

Update #13 years ago
Ash Wednesday out front of Greensburg’s Cathedral a fellow held a sign: “This Lent, god-gun-idol we repent.” Inside, Bishop Malesic imposed ashes saying, “Repent; Live the Good News.” That’s the message of our petition. We’re at the 320 endorser mark. We need 1,000. If each of us recruits 3 more we’ll be ready to deliver the petition’s message to the Bishops by Good Friday, when the Cross was the Gun that ended an innocent life. Need help? Phone: 724-864-1159.
