NEWTOWN, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) – Advocates of tougher measures on gun control are kicking off a third annual bike ride from Newtown to Washington.
The group, Team 26, set out Saturday morning on the 400-mile ride that is expected to take them four days.
“In the days following the shootings, the school down the road where my daughter went to school, we all decided that we needed to do something,” Monte Frank told WCBS 880’s Monica Miller.
Frank is a lawyer and founder of Team 26.
The 26 cyclists are drawing attention to their campaign for measures including requiring all gun sales to be subject to a background check and a ban on high-capacity magazines.
