A few days after Second Amendment supporters designated Jan. 19 as "Gun Appreciation Day," people on the other side of the issue are responding with some rallies of their own.
One Million Moms for Gun Control announced Friday it will sponsor "several major events" in January to demand "common-sense gun control laws."
The group said it will hold a demonstration at City Hall in New York on Monday, Jan. 21 -- which is Inauguration Day and the federal holiday marking Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday. The goal of the Million Moms' rally is to "reinforce a message of nonviolence and a safer world for our children."
The group also is planning a second rally -- a march on Washington -- on Saturday, Jan. 26 to demand "immediate action on common-sense gun control legislation."
