FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A number of protesters set up demonstrations outside the Allen County Republican Party headquarters yesterday to call for more gun control.

The group, called “Don’t Shoot Me,” was holding signs that read “Guns Over People” and “No More Silence, End Gun Violence” outside the GOP’s downtown Fort Wayne offices on day one of a planned week-long series of protests.

The group identifies itself as bipartisan, but some of the protesters there told the Journal Gazette the problem is due to inaction from Republican lawmakers in Washington.

Local party chair Steve Shine says the group is welcome to protest there.

They’ll be doing so every day from 5:30pm to 7pm, through Friday.


  1. I always wonder if these people are getting paid to protest against our individual rights. How about these mass knife stabbings? Never hear of people protesting against Knife violence. Why not get to the root of the problem….Never hear of people calling for mental health and wellness programs… Doesn’t seem like the Left ever wants to solve or reduce a problem.
