Video: Gun Control Advocates Protest the NRA

About 150 people protested in front of the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) Federal Affairs Division in Washington D.C. today (video below).

People held signs that read: “Teachers stand up to gunmen, but Congress won’t stand up to the NRA” and “ARMS ARE FOR HUGGING — GUN CONTROL NOW," reports ThinkProgress.org.

So far, the NRA has been silent on the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, which killed 20 children and 6 adults.

Protester Eddie Weingart, who witnessed his mother being shot and killed by her ex-husband with a shotgun, said: “He then turned the gun on me. The gun malfunctioned and that’s the reason why I’m here today.”
