In remembrance of her son, Brenda Mitchell and members of Moms Demand Action will walk from Indiana to Illinois to protest how easily guns can cross state lines. The Chicago Tribune has the story: “We want the killings to stop,” Mitchell said. “Enough. Not one more. We want others to understand what’s happening in our community."
The moms hope their walk will pressure the Illinois Senate to act on a bill that would impose new background check requirements when guns are transferred between private parties, Mitchell said. It passed the House in February. “This law has the potential to save a life,” she said.
