FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO) – Everytown for Gun Safety will be holding a rally in Fort Wayne this Saturday.

The focus of the rally is to urge the U.S. Senate to pass legislation that restricts access to firearms.  According to the Journal Gazette, the rally will be held at 10 a.m. at the Allen County Courthouse Green.  Attendees will include members of Moms and Students Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

The Everytown for Gun Safety organization focuses on calling for an end to gun violence, urging the Senate to pass legislation that requires background checks for all gun sales and to pass ‘red flag’ laws that will allow guns to be taken from people that are considered dangerous to themselves or others.

President of Everytown for Gun Safety, John Feinblatt, says “The American people want action on gun violence, and we’re saying so in a voice loud enough for every senator to hear.  We’re unleashing the full power of our grass-roots movement and leading our most aggressive August spending effort ever, to ensure the Senate gets the message and passes background checks and a strong federal ‘Red Flag’ law.”

Founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Shannon Watts, states “There is not a parent left in America that doesn’t fear that their child could be next.  That’s why our volunteers have planned events in all 50 states to make sure our senators know that lawmakers can vote to keep our families safe, or we will vote them out.”

  1. “The American people want action on gun violence…” Obviously you do not speak for every American when you call for additional gun legislation especially with “Red Flag Laws”. Red Flag Laws are meant as a slippery slope to restrict Americans 2nd Amendment as the Government sees fit, therefore, you are Anti-American is you are for the Red Flag Laws. Hey John Feinblatt, Why don’t you hold a rally for Knife Violence, or improvements to Mental Health, prescription drug use and violent video games? What’s the matter, you don’t want to solve the problem, or just the People funding you won’t pay for it?

  2. Look at all the Gun Laws in Chicago and the look at the muders every week. The same weekend of Dayton anf San Antono Chicago killed 19 (we don’t hear about that) Enforce what you have before you add more and what you want to add would have change that weekend. We don’t have a gun proublum we have a sociable proublum.

  3. ‘Red Flag’ laws will be the end of 2A in this country. For any arbitrary reason, people will be flagged. Sure it won’t start that way, but that is where it will end up. So only illegal guns will remain in the public, mostly by criminals. So who gets to raise the red flags? Who determines you to be unworthy of owning a gun? Who gets to say, you cannot defend yourself anymore? It will be a new tyrannical government agency in the 4th branch of unelected officials, and health professionals who never signed up for this responsibility.
