From the good folks at Mayors Against illegal Guns :
June 14th is the six-month anniversary of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Every single day since then, another 33 Americans have been murdered with guns — and still, Congress has failed to take meaningful action to reduce gun violence
Today, Mayors Against Illegal Guns is launching “No More Names: The National Drive to Reduce Gun Violence,” a bus tour that will visit 25 states in 100 days to commemorate the thousands of Americans who have been murdered since Newtown and to urge Congress to pass common sense legislation that will prevent future tragedies. At every stop along the way, gun violence survivors, family members and community members will come together to read the names of people who have been murdered with guns and to rally for comprehensive and enforceable background checks legislation. These powerful events will remind Washington that this fight isn’t over, and that we’ll continue to demand action until Congress passes new laws to reduce gun crime and save lives.
