I don’t know about you, but I’m getting pretty dang sick of mass shootings. After last week’s tragedy in Parkland, Florida, I reached out to Maggie Byers and Emilie De Angelis of Moms Demand Action NM to talk with me on my podcast Self-Employed Happy Hour about recent developments on the gun control front. Yeah, I realize gun control isn’t exactly squarely within the realm of the topic of “self-employment,” but a big reason why I choose to be self-employed is to have time to be active on issues when I can. And now is a time I’m feeling particularly motivated. Having my kids tell me about lockdowns in school is nothing short of crushing.
Moms Demand Action is a bi-partisan grassroots organization fighting the epidemic of gun violence in the US. My co-host Eph Sharpe and I get the lowdown from Maggie and Emilie about the group’s advocacy for common sense gun control legislation and how regular folks can get involved.
