Next Tuesday, June 18, the Mayors Against Illegal Guns’ “No More Names" bus tour will make a stop in Concord for an all-day vigil.
The event will feature gun violence survivors, family members, and community members reading the names of loved ones who have been murdered with guns. Participants will urge Congress to pass comprehensive and enforceable background checks legislation to reduce gun violence and save lives.
The 25-state tour launches in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday, the six-month anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings. The 100-day tour will commemorate the thousands of Americans killed with guns since Newtown.
Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the anti-gun violence group spearheaded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, has been running television ads in New Hampshire since March targeting Sen. Kelly Ayotte for her vote opposing expanded background checks for gun purchases.
