Moms demand action for gun sense in America

My mother Janet’s life was taken by gun violence during a domestic violence murder/suicide when she was 29 years old. My sister was five years old, and I was 11. Gun violence and the toll it takes on families, for generations, cannot be fully explained. Our lives are forever changed. An Extreme Risk Protection Order — also known as a Red Flag Law — may have saved my dear mother’s life.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
