My interest in the issue of gun violence prevention and gun safety reform comes from losing my sister in a domestic shooting. She was shot by her estranged husband during difficult and contentious divorce proceedings. Since marching in the 2000 Million Mom March in Washington D.C. I have been active at the local, state and national level and work with gun violence prevention groups and individuals nation-wide as well as victims and survivors to change the conversation about guns and gun violence. My goal is to get the majority of Americans and gun owners who agree with me to join the discussion and demand changes to our laws to keep guns from people who shouldn’t have them and kids and teens.
