Michigan Families to Rally for Sensible Gun Laws in Lansing
All 5 State Chapters of Moms Demand Action to Participate
All five Michigan chapters of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America will hold a statewide rally Saturday for commonsense laws to reduce gun violence in our communities. The family-friendly event takes place at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 13, at the Capitol in Lansing.
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (www.momsdemandaction.org) is a national nonpartisan grassroots movement founded after the Sandy Hook Elementary School killings. Moms Demand Action seeks solutions to lax gun laws and loopholes that jeopardize the safety of our children and families. Moms Demand Action is not asking our government to ban guns. We simply support commonsense solutions to the overwhelming and increasing epidemic of gun violence in America. Eight children are shot and killed every day in America.
Scheduled speakers include:
· Survivors of gun violence, including a youth from Detroit, and victim advocates
· A dad who is a longtime gun owner; a teacher; a pediatric emergency room physician; a minister; and a high schooler active in efforts to reduce gun violence
· Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero, who is a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns
· State Reps. Brandon Dillon (D-Grand Rapids) and Sam Singh (D-East Lansing)
· Music by Sally Potter
WHEN: 11 a.m. to noon, Saturday, April 13
WHERE: Capitol steps and lawn, Lansing, MI
