Utah interfaith group pushes for gun reform

The group hopes lawmakers will listen and do something to stop mass shootings.

(FOX 13) Religious leaders of various faiths gathered in Salt Lake City on June 3 to call for an end to gun violence.

Friday was National Gun Violence Awareness Day. It also marks the launch of the nationwide Wear Orange Weekend campaign.

Over the next 72 hours, communities across the United States will hold events to urge gun reform — and some local religious leaders are joining in.

When it comes to ending gun violence and changing gun laws, Reverend Curtis Price of Salt Lake City’s First Baptist Church says we need more than just thoughts and prayers.

“We pray here, yes, but we also stand and demand that our prayers be answered by our lawmakers,” Price said.

On Monday, Price was joined by religious leaders of various faiths for a vigil and call to action at his church.
