WALL TOWNSHIP — More than 30 moms, kids and community members gathered at the Manasquan Friends Meetinghouse on Saturday to call for a national ban on all assault weapons.
Members of the group, which also included teachers and gun violence survivors held signs stating, ‘Protect Kids not Guns’ and ‘Enough is Enough.’
The rally, which was held the day before Mother’s Day, was one of many #FedUp rallies organized by Moms Demand Action chapters across the country.
Moms Demand Action, a “grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence,” was founded shortly after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in December 2012, when Adam Lanza killed 26 people, 20 of whom being children ages 7 or younger.
