Moms Demand to talk gun safety today at legislature


Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is scheduled on the agenda of the Joint Performance Review Committee of the legislature at 1 p.m. today.

The group wasn't allowed to speak the last time the committee met to hear from a discredited gun advocate. Remember: When Sen. Trent Garner should that he didn't care the Moms weren't allowed to speak because they weren't "my people." Indeed.

On the agenda: The Moms Demand presentation against arming teachers.

Testimony today also includes a "red flag law" proposal. This would allow for an order restricting access to a firearm for someone deemed a risk to himself or others. Sen. Will Bond is also going to discuss a proposal to limit the purchase of an assault weapon to those 21 or older. Definitely not Trent Garner's people.

A note; Wouldn't it be great if this event were broadcast on the Internet? For now, Senate rules prohibit it.
