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.
