SC moms hold rally for gun violence victims


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A group of South Carolina mothers is holding a rally at the Statehouse to honor people killed by gun violence.

Members of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is launching a Mother's Day campaign focused on honoring gun violence victims and their families. Organizers say they'll meet at the Statehouse to release a Mother's Bill of Rights, which lays out rights that the moms want to protect their kids from guns.

A similar event is also scheduled for Greenville.

Earlier this month, the same group rallied at the South Carolina offices of U.S. Sens. Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott to voice concern over recent votes on gun control legislation.

Hopefully this 'concerned moms' DEMAND respect from their children for themselves and OTHERS.The mindset of individuals out to do harm is not that of a licensed gun owner who respects his gun and has been trained in the use and care of his weaponary.
