Rallying in Modesto for gun control

July 15, 2014 

A group of up to nine people rallied at the Five Points intersection in downtown Modesto on Tuesday morning to protest Congress’ inaction on legislation for universal background checks for firearm sales. The rally was held in response to a rampage that left six people dead and 13 others injured near the University of California at Santa Barbara in May. “We want this mass shooting to stop,” said Carole Stark, the Brady Campaign coordinator for Stanislaus County.
