Interesting article today about a youth pastor strating a movement in Florida. Here’s a clip from the local NBC affiliate:
MIAMI — After a string of recent shootings that killed several children in South Florida, one church is starting a grassroots movement to stop the violence.
People gathered at Faith, Prayer and Deliverance Church on Northwest 99th Street and 27th Avenue on Wednesday to sign a petition in support of the “No Right To Kill, Stray Bullet” bill. The goal is to get 1 million signatures in support of the bill, which demands life in prison for any act of violence that kills a child.
Youth pastor Anthony Dawkins is spearheading the movement. “We want this to become a national law,” he said. “You shoot a bullet into crowds and hit and kill children, we want life, mandatory. No parole.”
