Mayors Against Illegal Guns Group Launches New Push For Gun-Violence Legislation

Posted By on Thu, Mar 28, 2013 at 10:34 AM

For once it would be great to travel outside Arizona and not have folks look at you in pity when you tell them you're from Arizona. Even saying you're from Tucson doesn't offer much coverage in terms of pity, extreme empathy or sadness. I'm not sure what it is, but perhaps Shaun McClusky's not-so-brilliant scheme is simply to make sure his political future is now sealed with the crazies. (Read Jim Nintzel's recent post here.)

Today, Thursday, March 28 at 11 a.m. there's a press conference at the South Tucson City Hall, 1601 South 16th Ave. with Mayor Jennifer Ekstrom, joined by Daniel Hernandez, Jr., Pam Simon, Mayor Jonathan Rothschild, and Jocelyn Strauss, head of the newly formed Tucson chapter of Moms Demand Action.

More than 100 events across the country are planned for today, Thursday, March 28 as part of the National Day to Demand Action to end gun violence organized by Mayors Against Illegal Guns.
