Local moms join national movement for 'sensible' gun control
On December 15, the day after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, a stay-at-home mom in suburban Indianapolis founded One Million Moms for Gun Control.
Now called Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Shannon Watts’ initial Facebook page has transformed into more than 80 chapters and hundreds of thousands of members nationwide. Their goal is to become the MADD equivalent for gun violence while advocating for “sensible” gun regulations.
Linda Brundage, founder of the mid-Michigan/Lansing chapter, and Jennifer Edwards, founder in Ann Arbor, outline their goals.
