The massive anti-gun violence billboard on the Massachusetts Turnpike must relocate by next March, according to a deadline set by the parent company of the Red Sox, The Boston Globe reports.
[Real estate developer John Rosenthal] said he is searching for sites along the Turnpike, Interstate 93, Route 128, "or anywhere in Boston." Mayor Martin J. Walsh said he will support a new home in the city for the billboard, which he called "an eye-opening reminder of the tragedy of the crimes being perpetrated with guns across our nation."
The billboard is sponsored by Stop Handgun Violence, a Newton-based non-profit founded by Rosenthal that works to increase public awareness about gun violence. It was redone in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting rampage in 2012 to keep count of the number of Americans killed by guns since the massacre.
