Gun Control Advocates Say Shootings Should be Call to Action for Lawmakers

Aug 6, 2019


As members of Moms Demand Action were holding a national conference this past weekend, word came of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. Oklahoma Chapter Leader Christine Jackson was one of the two-thousand in attendance at the gun control advocacy group’s conference. She says people are fed up with gun violence and it’s past time for change. Jackson says the ranks of those demanding ‘sensible gun control’ are growing. There are now more than five-thousand supporters in Oklahoma and she says the upward trend is the norm across the nation.

She hopes lawmakers at the state and national levels will finally take action to curb gun violence.
