Group Uses Weekend Shootings To Push Stivers For Gun Meeting
A group that lobbies for gun control is using two weekend shootings to call for a meeting with a Central Ohio Congressman.
Late last week, on the six month anniversary of the Sandy Hook school shooting, Republican Representative Steve Stivers said â€œI will work with any group that wants to roll up their sleeves and find solutions.
Now the Columbus chapter of a group called â€œMoms Demand Action For Gun Sense In Americaâ€ is taking him up on that offer.
The group says a three-year-old shot while playing in a yard and an 11-year-old shot at a weekend festival are just the latest signs that tougher gun laws are needed.
Group members say theyâ€™ll call Stivers today to talk about their goals, including mandatory background checks for all gun purchases and banning assaults weapons and clips that hold more than 10 rounds.
