13 WTHR Indianapolis video content
INDIANAPOLIS – Two Indiana moms clashed at the Statehouse Thursday, but only one side was armed.
They were seriously outgunned, but the group Moms Demand Action were undeterred.
Nicky McNally from Carmel was the group spokesperson.
“On average, eight children die each day in this country from gun violence. Eight,” said McNally.
The group is asking for background checks on all gun sales, elimination of high capacity magazines and they want military-style weapons off the streets.
Just off to her right a handful of gun control opponents stood at attention, all armed with rifles that they described as AR-15 semi-automatic weapons strapped on their shoulders.
One man carrying a weapon remarked. “To me this is normal.”
“To walk down the street with one of these on?” Eyewitness News asked.
“Yeah,” he responded.
