Southeast Missouri Moms Demand Action in Jefferson City
Over 350 volunteers with Missouri Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America met in Jefferson City on Tuesday, February 20th for Advocacy Day. The group included 8 supporters from the southeast Missouri chapter.
The Moms Demand Action volunteers spent their day talking to legislators about proposed gun legislation and asking them to oppose H.B. 1936, which would allow for the concealed carry of handguns on college campuses, in day care centers, hospitals, private schools and bars.
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is a non-partisan grass roots organization founded on the day after the Sandy Hook school shooting in December 2012. Its members support the Second Amendment but also support common sense legislation that can reduce gun violence and save lives.
The local chapter meets on the 1st Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the Cape Girardeau Public Library. The next meeting will be March 7th and while the name says Moms, you don't need to be a woman or have kids to join. Men and women of all ages who want common sense solutions to our nation's gun violence problem are invited to attend.
