North Carolina Man Organizes 300-Mile March in Call for Gun Reform
WILMINGTON, N.C. ( May 3, 2013 ) – Gun Control Today ( GCT ), a grass roots group of ordinary citizens, has announced its march to Washington, D.C., beginning on May 18 at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. John Phelps, GCT founder, released this statement:
“ The tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School compels each of us to demand stricter gun control legislation. Everyone in our nation feels the pain of this massacre, and should demand that Congress pass responsible, reasonable gun control laws. Our march is a response to Congress’s failure to act regardless of the majority of Americans who favor stronger gun control legislation. We encourage participants to join the march at any point along the route, and for any distance that suits them. Make your voice heard! “
GCT will begin its 10 day march on May 18 at 8 am near the Sandy Hook Elementary School and will pass through New York City on May 20, Philadelphia on May 23 and Baltimore on May 26, ending at the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. on May 27. On May 28 participants will meet with Margaret Lawrynowicz, firearms staffer for Senator Kay Hagan.
