MVFR Charleston staff attended "Hands Around the State House", a gun rally orchestrated by Project Unity, a SC non-profit which aims to build stronger communities by reducing crime. The rally, which took place at the State House in Columbia, SC, pushed for more extensive background checks when purchasing firearms. SC State Senator Marlon Kimpson, who represents District 42 in Charleston, also the same district as MVFR's Charleston office is located, spoke at the rally along with Alana Simmons, granddaughter of slain Mother Emanuel massacre victim, Rev. Daniel L. Simmons Sr. Mother's Demand Action, a national group of mothers who have lost a child to gun violence was also present at the rally. "Let's keep working to close the loopholes. Fired up," said Senator Kimpson. Below are a few pictures from the rally as well as a link the Charleston's Post & Courier piece about the rally.
