“We, as people of faith, have a moral imperative to lead our society towards peace,” Rev. Liz Lerner Maclay said in a recent interview with GoLocal Prov. “Guns shouldn’t be used for individuals and private citizens against each other. Firearms used for war and violence — not shotguns and rifles intended for hunting and sport — need to be banned.”
In a 10-minute video interview on GoLocal Prov, Rev. Liz explains the multi-faith Guns into Plowshares project that kicks off on Mother’s Day weekend and discusses the faith community movement to pass common sense gun legislation in Rhode Island. A print article accompanying the video interview includes the other Providence faith communities that are participating with First Unitarian in the Guns into Plowshares project and the specific bills before the Rhode Island legislature that these congregations are supporting.
