My interview with WGN at the Romeoville IL School walkout. They completely shortened it, but gave us some time.

“It looks callous, it looks like we don’t care, but we really do. The problem is what we want to be heard on is that it’s not about the gun. It’s not about the weapon. There are mental health issues that are going on here that are not being addressed,” said Mary Callison, with 1 Million Moms Against Gun Control.
Callison said “I bawled my eyes out” for the victims of the Parkland shooting, but said she believes the kids taking part in Wednesday’s walkouts were being “used as pawns in the anti-gun game.”

"As a mom, keeping my children safe is my duty and responsibility. For that reason, I volunteer my time with an important grassroots organization, 1 Million Moms Against Gun Control (1MMAGC). The goal of 1MMAGC is to empower women and mothers to protect their families. My volunteer efforts don’t earn me a paycheck, but they do give me the satisfaction of knowing that I am working to keep children, including my own, safe."
"It must come as a surprise to Shannon Watts who runs Michael Bloomberg’s “Moms Demand Action” but gun owners really do have the law on their side. We have, however, become targets through social media bullying tactics. Ms. Watts should get used to legal gun owners prevailing, after all we have the Second Amendment on our side."
