ATLANTA — A Georgia gun manufacturer is being asked to testify before Congress about gun violence.
Daniel Defense, located in Black Creek, Georgia, just outside of Savannah, is the same company that made the weapon used in the elementary school mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas. A total of 19 children and two teachers died in that attack.
Now, the House committee on oversight and reform wants Daniel Defense and two other gun manufacturers to appear before members.
The CEO of Daniel Defense, Mark Smith, will testify July 20.
