Common Sense Gun Law Rally Held June 11th at the Capitol Organized by Students
Democratic Nominee for US Senate Inhofe’s Seat Kendra Horn was one of many speakers, speaking for common sense Gun laws to be enacted by our legislature at the state level but also at the national level.
She is flanked by over 50 students and young people imploring for their lives to be different once common sense Gun laws are enacted, so they aren’t afraid to go to school. Each speaker was paired with a student and they each spoke. It was amazing to hear the Impassioned pleas of the students about their futures. HR8- increased back ground checks, HR1446 the Charleston loophole, have been in the senate for over a year without 10 courageous Republican senators to reach across the aisle and bring it to a vote. They are also requesting to increase the age to 21 to purchase a gun, outlaw bump stocks, and automatic weapons as they have no use in a civil society since those were made for war and to confirm Steve Dettelbach as President Biden’s nominee for the Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
The rally started at 10 am in the morning but became warm quickly in the sun . Thankfully, the organizers had about 100 chairs for the 4-500 people gathered. Candidates, Community Organizers, pastors and students were eloquent in stating their points about common sense Gun laws and maintaining the second amendment which can easily be done when both sides of this issue come together for the safety of all people.
