Call for immediate action on gun safety legislation

Moms Demand Action held a press conference at Austin City Hall on Wednesday morning with Austin Mayor Steve Adler, Council Members Kathie Tovo, Paige Ellis, Alison Alter and Leslie Pool and survivors of gun violence.

Together, they made a call for immediate action on meaningful gun safety legislation at the state and federal levels. This comes in the wake of the mass shootings on August 3 and 4, which claimed the lives of 22 people in El Paso, Texas, and nine people in Dayton, Ohio.


Foreign countries have issued travel advisories to their citizens warning them about visiting the U.S. after two mass shootings over the weekend killed a total of 31 people.
