In the wake of the Sikh Temple massacre, Oak Creek's mayor is heading to Washington.

Mayor Steve Scaffidi leaves tomorrow for a meeting with Vice President Biden. Scaffidi and others will talk about the mass shootings across the country.

"We faced pretty horrific events as some of the other cities did, so we're on the ground we see what happened we see the response we see what he problem might be,” said Mayor Scaffidi. “So I think getting that perspective instead of just looking at it from on high in Washington, maybe that brings something else to the table they're not thinking of."

Scaffidi is a gun owner. He wants "common sense reforms" like safe gun storage and more resources for mental health.
