Protesters for and against tougher gun laws took to the streets of Downtown Dallas, Saturday as the National Rifle Association Convention continues.
Familiar faces like actress Alyssa Milano and parents of victims from the shooting in Parkland, Florida and Aurora, Colorado joined forces to push for tougher gun control laws. The group behind the event, No Rifle Association or ‘NORA’, says they want to vote out lawmakers who are influenced by NRA funding and replace them with lawmakers who will find a middle ground between conservatives and liberals on gun reform.
Others say they believe in both gun control and more focus on mental health resources need to be discussed to come up with a reasonable solution. The same group that held the rally also scheduled a Saturday night benefit for the Newtown Foundation at the Empire Room in Dallas.
