Faith & Society:
Ban Assault Weapons Now Petition

The quote from Gail goes like this: “my nephew, Alex, was 14 years old when he was murdered while sitting in his classroom in Parkland by an AR 15.” On this Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith, guns, and our nation’s path forward as regards gun violence. Out of her grief, from the murder of her 14-year-old nephew, came BAWN – Ban Assault Weapons Now! It is the first ever bipartisan coalition to work on an assault weapons ban with Republican Ambassador Al Hoffman, Jr. and members of victims’ families and survivors from both Parkland and PULSE. BAWN’s aim is to place an amendment on Florida’s 2020 ballot asking voters to stop the sale of military grade weapons to the general public. We’ll talk with the chair of that effort and we’ll talk about what we believe faith calls us to do. Our conversation with Ms. Gail Schwartz, chair of BAWN and the ballot initiative to stop the sale of military grade weapons – that’s coming up in just a moment on Friends Talking Faith.
