Mark Wright Shooting
In 2016, Wright’s son witnessed the mass shooting in Mukilteo. As a result of the shooting three of his friends died.
“It was a territory I’d never gone before. I described it as the scariest five minutes I’ve ever done on TV because it was live, it was very personal, and I never know when the emotions are ever going to come out. It’s weird how these things happen. When you go through a trauma like my son did — by extension all of the families involved have been impacted in some way. I think if we just sit down together, we can reach a place of understanding that can lead to sensible regulation.” he voiced following the Las Vegas mass shooting
