A former New Jersey lawmaker led a rally in Teaneck calling for more gun reform.
The group Grandmothers Against Gun Violence, led by former New Jersey Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg, gathered at the Arbor Terrace independent senior living community Tuesday afternoon.
The group spoke out against mass shootings and called for a ban on assault rifles. They are also pushing for changes in Washington.
"I know we've got good legislators, and I know they're on the right side of the issue as we perceive it,” Weinberg said. “But they have to stand up now and make more noise. We've got to match the NRA, place for place."
Grandmothers Against Gun Violence is made up of more than 1,200 members.
