Groups meet in Helena to discuss gun laws

Posted: Mar 06, 2018 8:17 PM Updated:

The Helena Democratic Action Committee and members of the national Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America met in Helena on Tuesday.

Members and non-members of both groups discussed how to model correct behavior with guns, recent and past mass shootings at America's schools, and how America can help prevent future tragedies.

Most attendees agreed there is not one single way to stop gun violence in America.

According to the Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense In America's website, they support the Second Amendment, but believe common-sense solutions can help decrease gun violence.

Beckie Squires, a member of Moms Demand, said the biggest issue is people do not think they can do something to help.

"After Parkland, I think it's really important that we need to do something," Squires said. "We can't have anymore of this happen. Like the kids say, enough is enough."

At Carroll College on the steps of St. Charles on Wednesday, March 14, there will be a walkout and moment of silent for 17 minutes marking the number of people who died in the Parkland mass shooting.

The march was organized by Women's March Youth EMPOWER.
