'Moms Demand Action' Pushes For Stronger Gun Control Laws

The Naples Daily News reports the teachers' students began exchanging friendship letters shortly after the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, that killed 20 children and six adults on December 14, 2012. More than 200 groups gathered all around the country to hold vigils in remembrance of those who lost their lives.

Since that shooting, Moms Demand Action has seen success in getting individual states to pass strict gun laws.

It is taking place Friday from 7 to 9 p.m.at Cathedral of Saint James, located at 117 N. Lafayette Blvd.in South Bend.

A demonstration on Kaahumanu Avenue fronting the Kahului Shopping Center marking the fifth anniversary of the Sandy Hook school shootings drew 34 people Thursday.

"We started it because of Sandy Hook", said Grandmothers Against Gun Violence President Patricia Hatch, "We found out it's such a complicated issue".
