Groups rallied at Statehouse over weekend
Last Updated: 73 days ago
INDIANAPOLIS - Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America -- a group started in central Indiana -- held a strategy meeting Monday night, fresh off a weekend rally outside of the Indiana Statehouse.
The group is pushing for a ban on assault weapons and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, background checks for all gun and ammunition purchases, a system to report the sale of large quantities of ammo to the ATF and a ban of online sales of ammunition.
"We are supporting common sense gun regulations to help reduce violence in America," said member Monnica Lewis.
The group did not rally unopposed at the Statehouse over the weekend.
Another group with a very different platform -- Indiana Moms Against Gun Control -- also showed up to tout its cause.
"The Second Amendment is under attack, and we need to stand up and say that we are not going to stand for it," said Melinda Porter, with Indiana Moms Against Gun Control.
