Columbus Moms Will Press for Passage of Gun Restrictions

President Obama on Wednesday called for a series of reforms in an effort to control the sale and use of guns in this country. Kelly Cameron is one of the founders of the Columbus Chapter of "One Million Moms For Gun Control," a national group supporting restrictions on gun ownership. Cameron says for her, the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School last month were "a wake-up call." She says members have posted e-mail addresses and phone numbers for politicians in Ohio on the group's Facebook page. Cameron says "One Million Moms For Gun Control" is planning a march on Washington on January 26th. And she says the group plans a rally on the New York City Hall steps to reinforce non-violence next Monday, Martin Luther King Day. The Columbus chapter plans a rally in February to show support for what they call common sense gun laws.
