Stroller jam happening this morning to protest loaded guns on buses

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening in just a fewhours a local group is calling for banning loaded guns on city buses. 

A local ban would facemany challenges, today the group ‘Moms Demand Action' will take their politicalgoals and put them on wheels.

The hope is to have loadedguns banned from city buses.  Theanti-gun-violence group will hold what they are calling a ‘stroller jam' on SunTran buses. 

They want a city wide banon loaded guns on board the Sun Tran buses. All of this is because of a series of complaints in the past month aboutpeople bringing loaded guns on the bus.

Because a city-wide banwould be even stricter than state laws that ban cannot happen without the statelegislature approving it. 

Several state lawmakerswill be taking part in the stroller jam today too.  A stroller jam will also be happening inPhoenix next weekend too.

The stroller jam todaystarts at 10 a.m. at the TUSD headquarters, and marches to Roskruge MiddleSchool and then riding the buses to the Ronstadt Center in downtown.
