On July 27, 2022, members of the Democrats of Greater Tucson heard Kelley Ireland and Teresa Neiberg of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense and Pete Plahmer of Banner Medical Center’s Trauma Outreach & Injury Prevention program. The panelists discussed ways to protect ourselves, our families, and our communities with two Common Sense Gun Control advocates
