In an effort to stop gun violence, volunteers with Alabama Moms Demand Action and survivors of gun violence will meet with state legislators this week.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, April 10 in Montgomery, and speakers will include at least two gun violence survivors and one gun owner.

The volunteers hope to stop lawmakers from passing SB 4 and HB 336, two bills that would allow gun owners to carry concealed and loaded firearms without required permits or a previous background check.

The group will be testifying against SB 4 at the Senate Judiciary Committee at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

HB 49, an expansion of the state’s Stand Your Ground law in which religious groups are allowed to use violent force in situations up to their discretion, will also be opposed by the volunteers.

The meetings will take place at the Statehouse.
