Rally Saturday For Greater Gun Control Legislation

The effort to make our kids and communities safer comes to the State House tomorrow afternoon as a coalition against gun violence is holding a rally at the State House from noon to 1:30.

According to a Facebook invite:

Gun violence is EPIDEMIC in the US – and has become not only a major public health and safety issue, but SO sadly, has become NORMALIZED and ROUTINE

Please join us. At Saturday’s rally we will be hearing from victims of gun violence, advocating for common sense reform of gun policy and supporting stronger state and federal regulation of military-grade weaponry – changes that WILL help protect our families and communities from future gun violence.

This is the Moment – Let us Speak! Let us Act!

    I’m still failing to see how additional gun restrictions will make our “kids and communities” safer. If we look at what happened in CT, what additional restriction could have been in place that would have prevented such a tragedy? Lanza entered a place where guns were 100% illegal. There’s nothing more restrictive than that, and yet that law didn’t stop him from killing 26 people with stolen guns.
