April 18, 2023 – Linking Arms for Change
On Tuesday, April 18 we linked arms for change in Nashville and Knoxville! Over 8,500 people registered to participate in this event on April 18. We all wore red and created a human chain spreading from Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, where victims of The Covenant School shooting were taken on March 27, all the way to the Tennessee State Capitol. The peaceful event served as an expression of solidarity among the chorus of voices who support the following common sense gun laws this session:
- Extreme Risk Laws that would allow authorities to temporarily remove guns from people who pose a risk to themselves or others
- Stronger Gun Storage Laws that would require gun owners to provide safe storage and report lost or stolen guns.
- Closing Background Check Loopholes to keep guns away from dangerous people by closing the background check loophole.
