Video: Lori Haas, Mother of Virginia Tech Shooting Survivor, Visits Newtown, CT

More great work by filmmakers Annabel Park and Eric Byler, this time in their Story of America series. Here's Annabel's and Eric's description of the above video, an interview with Virginia Tech mom Lori Haas, who now works full time to stop the kind of gun violence her daughter experienced:
On Jan 15, 2013, about 100 people delivered a petition to Walmart in Danbury, CT near Newtown asking the company to stop selling military-style rifles in its stores. Walmart is the top gun seller in the country. Among the people gathered there was Lori Haas, the mother of Emily Haas, one of the survivors of the Virginia Tech shooting. This is our interview with Lori. The petition was signed by 300,000 and collected by MomsRising.org and SumOfUs.org
By the way, if you believe the work Eric and Annabel are doing is valuable and would like to help keep it going, please click here to donate. Thanks.

Who's my legislator? (0.00 / 0)
Maybe on every post on gun policy you should put in a link to the "Who's my legislator?" page:
http://conview.state.va.us/who...

Blogging is good, but we all need to be contacting our legislators on this.


Thanks for the link, I added it to (0.00 / 0)
