Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense In America To Sponsor "Moms Demand Action Week" To Pressure Congress To Pass Stronger Gun Laws

INDIANAPOLIS, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America announced today a week-long campaign starting Mon., April 1, 2013, to mobilize moms across the country to demand Congress pass new and stronger common-sense gun laws.

"Even after the Sandy Hook Elementary mass shooting, Congress continues to let a vocal minority of gun industry lobbyists dictate our nation's gun laws," said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. "If common sense gun laws are not passed this session by Congress, American mothers will bring the fight to their state legislatures and the 2014 mid-term elections. We will not forget which members of Congress stood down when our children most needed them to stand up."

During "Moms Demand Action Week," Moms Demand Action members will pressure Congress every day via in-district meetings, Tweets, calls and emails to their elected officials. All of these actions are being taken in memory of Ana Marquez-Greene, one of the 20 first graders brutally murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. Ana would have turned 7 years old on April 4.

"The grief is getting worse, not better, as the days go by," said Nelba Marquez-Greene, Ana's mother. "However, a warrior has arisen within me. I believe that love wins. Our love for our children and families must win. How is it possible that we are struggling to pass stronger gun laws after a man entered the sanctity of an elementary school and murdered 20 children and 6 educators? Mothers must band together and insist that Congress take action on common-sense legislation that the vast majority of Americans supports."

"I am every American mother. And I ask mothers and families across the country, in Ana's memory during her birthday week, to encourage Congress to advocate for legislation that will result in meaningful changes to our gun laws and mental health system," said Marquez-Greene.
