    On Saturday, the Rev. Al Sharpton announced his plans to protest the NRA in support of stronger gun control laws. A nod to his Occupy the Corner campaign earlier this year, during which locals gathered at some of New York’s most violent intersections to exhibit solidarity against rising gun violence, Sharpton referenced the shooting of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and called for action, reports the Daily News.

    “We need to get a real movement against those who get rich off the perpetuation of killing,” said the civil rights leader …
    He urged Congress to pass meaningful gun control legislation, ripping its inaction after the mass shooting at Virginia Tech or the one in Tucson that gravely wounded then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and killed six others.
    “They shot one of their legislators in Tucson and they still didn’t put a new bill on the table,” he said.
