WPXI Channel 11 website covered lobbying efforts by a group called Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America in Harrisburg advocating for gun control in Pennsylvania. The story quotes a Jenkintown resident and her warning to the National Rifle Association.
According to the report:
A rally Monday drew Robert Schentrup, whose sister was a victim of last year’s mass school shooting in Parkland, Florida, and Julia Spoor, a 17-year-old Jenkintown resident who helped launch Students Demand Action after her father committed suicide.
Speaking at the rally, Spoor warned lawmakers aligned with the National Rifle Association that she will turn 18 – voting age – soon, and so will millions of others like her.
“Us meddling kids will finally have the right to take control of our own lives, and if lawmakers are scared by that, they should be,” she said.
