A group of Johnson County Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America activists were at the organization’s convention in Washington, D.C. last weekend when word of the mass shooting that killed 22 in El Paso, Texas, broke.

The KC area residents were still processing the news that Erin Langhofer, a 25-year-old Overland Park native, had been killed by gunfire at First Fridays in Kansas City last week, when they learned about what had happened in El Paso.
