Stop Handgun Violence Joins March for Our Lives 4th Anniversary Event in Washington

Washington, DC – John Rosenthal, founder of Stop Handgun Violence, is in Washington, DC today to join the March for Our Lives for gun violence prevention on the 4th Anniversary of the record breaking first march in 2018. Rosenthal will join other national leaders delivering a message to elected officials to take action to stem the epidemic of gun violence in America.

While state legislatures have taken action to reduce gun violence, Congress has not passed meaningful gun violence laws – even after the tragic massacres of Americans in Sandy Hook, Parkland and Las Vegas. The mass shooting in Parkland, Florida inspired the March for Our Lives in 2018.

Rosenthal can speak to how states like Massachusetts have reduced gun deaths by 40% in the last 25 years by passing sensible legislation, and can serve as a model for the rest of the country.


John Rosenthal is in Washington, DC and available for interviews today.

Where: Capitol Mall

Who: John Rosenthal, founder of Stop Handgun Violence
