State Senator Eric Adams (D-20) is calling residents to come together Sunday and take action against gun violence.
The goal of "Hands across the Brooklyn Bridge," Adams' response to last Friday's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., is to create a human chain across the Brooklyn Bridge.
This will help send a message to lawmakers that America needs a more reasonable regulation of guns, which Adams' says the 2nd Amendment does not prevent.
"We're going to keep it intense, and our human chain is saying, 'We are bounded together to solve this problem,'" Adams told NY 1.
The protest is scheduled for 5 p.m., with meetings scheduled for 4:15 p.m. at Cadman Plaza Park near Tillary Street in Brooklyn and at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge near City Hall in Manhattan. A poster for the event advises participants to bring a candle.
