Joplin Moms Demand Action Raise Awareness For Gun Safety In The Four States

Starting Friday June 6 and running through Sunday June 8 is National Wear Orange Weekend in order to raise awareness for gun safety across the United States. Moms Demand Action chapters across the country are holding Wear Orange events to raise awareness for the 100 people on average across the US that are affected by gun violence daily according to the group. Locally, the Joplin Moms Demand Chapter is hosting a Wear Orange Event at Landreth Park in Joplin starting at 11 am.

On a Friday Morning Edition, we were joined by Louis Morgan of Moms Demand Action Joplin. Morgan said that the event is open to the public and that there will be music, food and family friendly events. In addition, the group will be giving away free gun locks to gun owners who would like one. According to Morgan, Moms Demand Action isn’t looking to change or alter the 2nd Amendment, but rather to bring the issue of gun safety and the affect that it is having on American culture to the forefront of society.
