SAN JOSE (KCBS)— A Senate Judiciary Committee was scheduled to vote Thursday on the controversial assault weapons ban authored by California Senator Dianne Feinstein. Meanwhile, a group of Bay Area moms was in Washington, D.C. Wednesday morning lobbying Congress in support of the ban.
San Jose Pediatrician Michelle Sandberg was parked in a van in front of the White House ready to go in and meet with staffers. She and 2,000 other California mothers are part of a national movement called One Million Moms.
“Our goal is really comprehensive gun-control legislation,” said Sandberg about the organization founded after the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy.
“I think this legislation’s inevitable. I think the legislators need to realize there is public support,” she said.
