Candlelight Vigil & Rally in Pleasant Hill
Please join us and show your support! The Contra Costa Brady Chapter will hold a candlelight vigil and bell ringing for the victims of the Newtown massacre and others who have been killed with firearms in CA and the US. This will also be a Rally in Support of President Obama’s gun control proposals. President Obama used his State of the Union address to call for stronger gun laws. He outlined a plan for common-sense reform, like background checks on all sales, new laws to prevent anyone from buying guns for resale to criminals, and getting weapons of war and massive ammunition magazines off our streets. He called for Congress to give the proposals an up or down vote.
