Group seeking gun limits plans Des Moines stop

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A national bus tour calling for tougher gun laws is coming to Des Moines.

The “No More Names: National Drive to Reduce Gun Violence tour will make a stop Wednesday morning in the city’s Union Park as part of a 25-state tour.

The event will include Carlee Soto, whose sister was killed at the Newtown, Conn., school where 20 children and six educators died.

Pat Maisch also will attend. He survived a mass shooting in Tucson, Ariz., where former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was injured.

They will be joined by local officials, including Des Moines Mayor Frank Cownie.
