Rev. Phyllis Stutzman of the Emporia Presbyterian Church explained the purpose of Family Promise of the Flint Hills. This organization is looking for sponsors to assist the families of homeless Emporia students by helping provide relief and temporary housing needs.
Mike Hudson brought Gail Milton to tell our Rotary Club about the compelling story of an organization called Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. This organization was started by some fed-up Moms after the Sandy Hook School shooting incident. This group supports the Second Amendment, but is fighting for better gun laws. They claim that background checks are a deterrent to gun violence that makes sense and is responsible government. The numbers certainly point to more gun violence occurring. Over 200 school shootings have occurred since Sandy Hook. Year-to-date 2018 there have been 47,220 gun incidents. 96 Americans die every day from gun violence. 
 
Many of the common behaviors of those instigating gun violence in public places are as follows:
  • personal grievance
  • history of criminal charges
  • a significant stressor occurred in their lives in the last five years
  • financial instability
  • serious concerns evident among others who know them (if you see something, say something)
  • have possession of firearms illegally
  • males age 15-66
