A group of concerned citizens will deliver a petition with more than three hundred signatures to Senator Joe Donnelly on Friday. They are asking that steps be taken to protect children in the community by reducing gun violence.
The group includes members of the Michiana Peace and Justice Coalition as well as Mayors Against Illegal Guns.
They want to recognize Senator Donnelly for his recent statement in support of comprehensive background checks for gun buyers. They'll be stopping by the senator's South Bend office in the morning.
