COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A group of South Carolina mothers is calling on state lawmakers to address gun violence.
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is Saturday at the Statehouse in Columbia.
Speakers included, Joanne Hafter, a Columbia mother whose daughter was killed by someone using a stolen gun.
The group is calling for a ban on all assault weapons and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, require background checks for all gun and ammunition purchases, ban the online sale of ammunition and report the sale of large quantities of ammunition to the ATF.
Lawmakers are considering several gun-related bills, including a measure that would require the state to give federal authorities information about people who have been adjudicated to have a mental health problem, in the hopes of keeping those people from being able to legally buy guns.
Legislators are also considering a bill intended to let people with concealed weapon permits carry their gun into restaurants.
