State Representative David Linsky, who hails from Natick, announced today that he will be speaking at the One Million Moms for Gun Control rally this Saturday in front of the State House.
The rally, which will begin at 11:30 a.m., will support "common sense gun legislation," according to Linsky's office.
Linsky is the lead sponsor of a bill aiming to prevent gun violence by closing loopholes in existing state laws, requiring mental health background checks, and emphasizing gun storage requirements. The bill would also require gun owners ssign up for liability insurance.
The bill was filed this month in the wake of the Newtown, Conn. shooting in December.
One Million Moms for Gun Control is a grassroots organization started last month after the shooting.
