ALEXANDRIA, VA. - The Democratic candidates for governor will participate in a forum on gun violence in Alexandria Sunday, May 21 at 1 p.m. It will be held at the Hilton Alexandria Old Town (1767 King St.) in the Grand Ballroom.

Former Congressman Tom Perriello and Lieutenant Gov. Ralph Northam are running for the Democratic nomination. The candidates will discuss their positions on gun control and reducing gun violence.

The forum will be hosted by Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC, a gun control group founded by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband Captain Mark Kelly after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012. The group typically supports Democratic candidates in elections. The moderator is David Chipman, a former special agent with the Justice Department's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
