Gov. Kate Brown, Paul Evans rallies for gun legislation with Moms Demand Action

More than 30 people squeezed into the conference room of the Services Employees International Union headquarters in Salem on Saturday to advocate gun safety, before launching a canvassing effort for Rep. Paul Evans, candidate for House District 20.

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, an organization created in 2012 to push gun reform to legislators, state and federal institutions, companies, and educational institutions, hosted the rally as a precursor to a canvassing effort for Evans, a representative the organization refers to as a "gun sense champion."

"We all know to make Oregon safer, we need to have gun sense activists in our legislature, which is why we're here today to ensure the re-election of Paul Evans," said Lisa Reynolds, a volunteer for the Oregon chapter of Moms Demand Action.

More than 20 volunteers donned red t-shirts emblazoned with the words "Moms Demand Action," and armed themselves with clipboards before hitting the streets with the goal of knocking on 1,000 doors Saturday morning, according to Reynolds. They aim to knock on 10,000 doors during the next 10 days leading up to the election.
