Rally for Common Sense Gun Safety Legislation Today!

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America will be hosting a rally outside Legislative Hall on the East Side Steps today at 12:30 pm. The rally will feature supportive lawmakers, advocates, local students, and survivors of mass shootings, all speaking in support of common-sense legislation that will help reduce gun violence in Delaware.

That legislation will include a ban on the manufacture, sale and purchase of assault weapons designed quickly to inflict large numbers of casualties; restrictions on high-capacity magazines, which combined with assault weapons, have been used in the five deadliest mass shooting incidents over the past decade and a bill that would require a permit for all firearm purchases to help keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and others prohibited from owning such weapons.

The speakers at the rally are as follows:

  • Sarah Stowens and Meghan Walls, Moms Demand Action
  • Students Wyatt Patterson and Avery Jones
  • Human Rights Campaign Press Secretary Sarah McBride
  • Survivors Megan O’Donnell Clements and the Rev. Vicky Gordy-Stith
  • Delaware Attorney General Kathleen Jennings
  • Rep. Valerie Longhurst, D-Bear
  • Sen. Bryan Townsend, D-Newark/Bear
  • Sen. David Sokola, D-Newark
  • Sen. Laura Sturgeon, D-Brandywine

Delaware politics from a liberal, progressive and Democratic perspective. Keep Delaware Blue.
