It has been a little more than three months since seven people were killed and 48 others were injured in a shooting at Highland Park’s Fourth of July Parade.
In the months since the shooting, Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering has increased her calls for a ban on assault weapons.
She says her community is still in the process of working toward a recovery.
“We are getting a better understanding of what forever looks like after a mass shooting,” Rotering said. “But we’re also working through the memorializing, recognizing the long-term impacts of what a devastating event like this has on a community.”
