ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Today, a local group held an anti-gun rally in downtown Rockford.
Moveon.org hosted the rally at Church and Chestnut. Other advocacy groups like Occupy Rockford joined residents and religious leaders to figure out ways to stop gun violence. Organizers say that includes geo-policing. Dale Dunnigan says he doesn't think concealed carry will solve our gun problems.
"How many kids does it take to die before we want to do something? you know there are ways to settle things democratically that do not involve bullets and blood,” said Dunnigan.
Moveon.org is a non-profit organization recognized nationwide that focuses on progressive change.
