Moms Demand Action Speaker at May 22 Meeting

Gun violence is affecting the lives of Americans everyday. At our May General meeting, we heard a presentation from LC Arisman from the Napa Chapter of Moms Demand Action, a grassroots movement of Americans working to enact common sense public safety measures and close the loopholes that jeopardize the safety of our families. One of the actions of the organization is working with local governments to pass ordinances requiring safe storage of guns. Such ordinances have been passed or are being considered in St. Helena, Yountville Napa and Healdsburg.  A motion was made to approach Mayor Sandra Lowe and the Sonoma City Council to consider a Safe Firearm Storage Ordinance.
