WASHINGTON (CBSDC)- Within days of the Sandy Hook shootings, MomsRising.org launched a petition in support of what they call common-sense gun regulations.

On Feb. 14, the two-month anniversary of the massacre, the organization delivered a petition to U.S. Senators and Members of Congress. On Thursday, three months after the shootings, members attempted to bring 130,000 signatures to the National Rifle Association of America headquarters in Fairfax.

Dozens marched with signs, and others pushed strollers full of the physical copies of the petition, but they were met at the property line by security and turned away.

Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, co-founder, executive director and CEO of MomsRising, wrote NRA president David Keene a letter on March 5 requesting a meeting with him.
