One Million Moms for Gun Control is a grassroots effort formed in the wake of the devastating mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.  The groups founder is Shannon Watts of Indiana and thousands have joined her.  They are growing by the day with more members and dozens of state and local chapters.  Together they hope to prevent more moms from experiencing pain and heartbreak from gun violence.

Gun Control March is a non-partisan group of concerned citizens who have gathered to create a march on Washington for Gun Control through the leadership of Suzanne Blue Star Boy and Molly Smith.  Two women for whom the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School was a turning point and they believe now is the moment to act.  The issue is about ensuring common sense regulations, not taking away anyone’s right to have a gun.

    No law – past, present, or future can or will stop an event such as Newtown. If it were true – we would have absolutely no need for jails. The undeniable fact is criminals and the mentally unbalanced simply do not obey the law.

    If a four wheel drive, green Ford F150 pick-up truck with a 20 gallon gas tank was driven by an un-licensed, mentally challenged driver into a group of children at a playground resulting in 20 deaths …

    Do we outlaw FOUR WHEEL DRIVE vehicles?
    Do we outlaw GREEN trucks?
    Do we outlaw FORD trucks?
    Do we outlaw FORD MODEL 150 pickup trucks?
    Do we outlaw PICKUP trucks?
    Do we restrict pickup truck gas tanks to 10 gallons?

    Clearly the answer is no.

    Infringing on the constitutional rights of US citizens is wrong. You have no “right” to take away the constitutional rights of United States citizens.

      Hi Tom, We appreciate your comment and understand your point. I can assure you that if, in the space of 2 years, TWENTY Green Pickups continuously killed dozens of innocent Americans they would have been pulled off of the street without question.

  2. Nothing against CT. I’m a former Groton City Councilor. But why not expand the reach of your effort by welcoming people from everywhere to participate? I now live in MD.

    I was interested in your bus but didn’t hear anything definitively so I booked the train.

  4. Lisa says:

    I think there’s a typo above on the meeting location — do you mean to say ’23rd St NW’ rather than ’3rd’?

  5. Dave says:

    My family and I will be there! The organizers have invited us CT families to represent at the front of the march, along-side the politicians, clergy, celebrities and other influential types! Won’t you join is there?!

  6. Andrea says:

    Making it from CT to DC in 5 hours is ambitios, but I wish you best of luck and we’ll see you there.
