Age 19 , California
Veronika Weiss, age 19 was one of the six students killed during the Isla Vista mass shooting on May 23, 2014. Fourteen others were wounded. Bob Weiss, Veronika’s father is honoring his daughter’s memory by his activism in the gun violence prevention movement. I am the Chair of the Coalition Against Gun Violence. Bob has told the tragic story of his loss to our Santa Barbara community. He agreed to talk about his survival and activism on CAGV’s local access TV show. I wish to honor Veronika’s memory in support of Bob and his family.
