Rally to Back Common-Sense Gun Laws Held


Families of gun violence victims, faith leaders, gun owners, elected officials, and advocates gathered at the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta this week to voice their continued support for comprehensive and enforceable background checks that help keep guns out of the wrong hands.

Participants also called on U.S. Senators Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss to reconsider their position on this life-saving measure and take another look at bipartisan background checks legislation.

Participants included: Lucy McBath, whose 17-year-old son Jordan Davis was murdered with a gun in November; John Starbuck, whose 19-year-old daughter Meleia was murdered with a gun in 2005; State Senator Vincent Forte; State Senator Nan Orrock; Pastor Gary Charles of the Central Presbyterian Church; Alice Johnson of Georgians for Gun Safety; and Piyali Cole of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
