On the second anniversary of her daughter’s death, Roxanna Green is honoring the young girl’s memory by fighting for gun regulation. At 9-years-old, Christina-Taylor was the youngest victim to die in the mass shooting rampage that also injured former Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords.
Today Green appeared in an ad for Mayors Against Illegal Guns, addressing lawmakers and asking, “When will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby?” She speaks about the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, relating the tragedy to her own experience as a mother who lost a child because of a deranged gunman.
Green and her husband believe in second amendment rights and own guns. What they want is stricter rules for background checks and a ban on “assault military-style weapons,” and “big capacity magazines.”
Anderson asks her if she believes political leaders are going to support those changes. Watch a preview of the interview and see more at 8 and 10 p.m. ET.
