Rybak, Milwaukee mayor hosting regional gun summit tomorrow

Mayor R.T. Rybak and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett are hosting the Regional Gun Summit tomorrow at the Depot Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel — an event drawing community leaders, law enforcement officials and national researchers on gun violence from across the Midwest.

About 100 people will participate and share best practices and challenges in the fight against gun violence. It marks the first time a group of this size from around the region will gather face-to-face to discuss gun issues, according to city officials.
