Take Our Poll: Gun Violence
What would you do to stop gun crimes in our city?
As we reported yesterday, Easton's Weed & Seed program has asked several city churches to hold vigils today to honor the victims of gun violence.
These vigils are timed to coincide with the anniversary of the mass shooting in Arizona last year that killed six people, and wounded 13 others, includng U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
Weed & Seed is working with a group called CeaseFirePA, which is circulating a pledge asking its signers to support efforts to stop illegal handgun use. The group says most gun crimes are committed with illegal guns.
As always, we want to know what our readers think. Easton is no stranger to gun violence, how can we combat it? Offer your ideas in the comments section, or take our poll.
