With two consecutive mass shootings in the United States taking place within 24 hours, many Americans are responding with more than thoughts and prayers. Case in point: After the El Paso, Texas shooting on Saturday, hundred of moms stormed the White House to demand common-sense gun laws and to implore lawmakers to do their “damn jobs.” The moving scene proves parents are not willing to give up on this important fight just yet.

The powerful impromptu demonstration was sparked by news of a mass shooter a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, who left at least 20 dead and injured dozens on Saturday, according to the Texas Tribune. Protest attendees, most of whom “were already in the nation’s capital for a conference,” chanted in protest of Congress’ lack of action on gun safety, holding signs with slogans like “End white supremacy” and “We stand with all gun violence victims,” to name a few examples.
