Moms Demand Action and other gun control activists from across Indiana gathered at the Statehouse Saturday to demand state and federal policymakers pass legislation to reduce gun violence.

A bipartisan group of local and state officials joined the crowd to talk about what they and activists can do to reduce gun crime in Indiana – including passing federal red flag legislation and limiting access to firearms.

During his remarks, Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett signed the Mayors Against Illegal Guns statement of principles from the gun control advocacy group Everytown.

Greater Lafayette is home to a host of groups fighting for a cause, whether that’s racial equality, reproductive justice, or an end to gun violence. The broader goals of many of these organizations overlap, but sometimes conflicts can threaten to derail their conversations.

Everytown For Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action announced a $100,000 advertising campaign against the National Rifle Association during its annual convention in Indianapolis.
