hplandmark.com news the highland park landmark | June 6, 2019 | 3 Highland Park City Council Mayor Rotering encourages residents to wear orange for National Gun Violence Awareness Day Eric Bradach Freelance Reporter With nationwide movement to combat gun violence, Mayor Nancy Rotering announced that Highland Park will participate in National Gun Violence Awareness Day, June 2, at City Council’s May 28 meeting. “The horrifying news is that over 100,000 people are injured or killed by gun violence every year,” Rotering said. “Like so many others, I along my City Council colleagues recognize the very real challenges facing our nation’s efforts to reduce gun violence. But no, we’re still the only civilized nation that faces this extreme amount of gun violence. None of our peer countries have anything close to this.” Rotering encouraged all residents to join the national campaign in wearing orange to raise awareness of the issue and encourage safety. “No parent should have to worry about sending a child to school, to the park or to the movies,” she said. “Gun violence in our nation has created an unnecessary culture of fear.” Representative from Moms Demand Action, a nationwide grassroots organization that advocates for public safety policy to combat gun violence, attended the meeting. They said it is open to all political views and is not against the 2nd Amendment but is “pro common sense.” The coalition movement to declare June 2 as National Gun Violence Awareness Day came after the January 2013 murder of Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old Black girl from Chicago, Illinois, who was shot and killed while in a park with friends. The organizers chose the color orange because it’s what hunters use to announce their presence to other hunters and it also symbolizes the value of human life. “While we have a city Join us Tuesday ordinance that bans the ownership of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in Highland Park, for reasons that remain unclear to me, our Illinois General Assembly has failed to offer that opportunity to other municipalities,” Rotering said. “I and my fellow colleagues will continue to fight to push the General Assembly to allow other municipalities to have that right to ban these weapons of war in their communities.” Froggys French Cafe Monthly Special for June Available for Lunch or Dinner $19 per person BEFORE 6pm through Friday Closed Sunday and Monday CHOICE OF SOUP OR SALAD ENTREE CHOICE OF....
