White says we all play a role in ending gun violence.

“We’re tired of the senseless violence,” White said. “We saw what happened at the parade (in Illinois). We saw what happened in Philly. It’s just senseless gun violence around the country right now, and we got to get a handle on it, and we got to get these streets under control in the right way.”
