INDIANAPOLIS - Experts estimate that 39 percent of women who are murdered are killed by an intimate partner. A group with Indiana ties was placing domestic violence at the center of the gun debate.
Everytown for Gun Safety, in partnership with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, rolled out a new ad Tuesday that delivers a message about domestic violence and gun control.
Watch the full ad in the embedded video below.
"It's a very emotionally triggering ad, which I think is the purpose of the promoter of the ad," said Julia Kathary, executive director of Coburn Place Safe Haven.
Moms Demand Action founder and Zionsville mom Shannon Watts said women in the U.S. are 11 times more likely to be killed with guns than in any other developed country. She believes the gaps in our laws leave women at risk.
