OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- A local group of grandmothers are now more concerned about gun safety after Sunday's shootings at two Jewish facilities.
They formed "Grandmothers Against Gun Violence" in September.
'GAG' has worked to change gun laws on both sides of the state line.
Fox 4's Kathy Quinn talked to one of the founding members of Grandmothers Against Gun Violence, Judy Sherry.
Sherry is a grandmother who wants to keep guns out of the hands of people like Frazier Cross, the suspect in Sunday's shootings.
She started Grandmothers Against Gun Violence after she heard about a similar group that started after the Sandy Hook school shootings.
Little did she know there would be a shooting here in the metro just months later targeting people of her own faith.
Sherry says she's angry because the alleged shooter should not have had access to any guns with his record.
This hate crime also touches home because Sherry is Jewish.
But instead of making her afraid, or scared, it's done the opposite.
When her family got together for the Passover meal, they thanked God they were safe and they prayed for the victims and their families.
Sherry says GAG's mission is to affect public policy regarding guns.
"So the job of grandmothers against gun violence is to speak out, that is our job, affect public policy so that some day we will have a country where our children and our grandchildren are safe ...In their home, or their community or wherever they are," she said.
Sherry says you don't have to be a grandmother to join the group, anyone can sign up.
