©2013 By Terrence T. McDonald/The Jersey JournalA group formed in the wake of last month’s Newtown, Conn. school massacre will rally in Jersey City next weekend for stronger gun-control laws.
Mandi Perlmutter, who helps run One Million Moms for Gun Control’s New Jersey chapter, said the nationwide group wants to “bring some common sense” to the discussion over gun violence.
