Bainbridge says ‘Enough’ at vigil against gun violence | Photo gallery

Islanders concerned about continued mass shootings gathered in Town Square Aug. 12 for the Bainbridge Island Vigil Against Gun Violence.

The event was presented by Moms Demand Action, and State Rep. Drew Hansen, a 23rd District lawmaker, was one of the guest speakers.

While noting that incidents of gun violence continue to occur across the country — two mass shootings earlier this month in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas prompted the vigil — Hansen told a crowd of roughly 50 attendees that Washington state was making progress on gun safety laws. Other speakers included Bainbridge Councilman Matt Timran, representatives of Moms Demand Action, and leaders of the Bainbridge faith community, including Rev. Senji Kanaeda of Myohoji Buddhist Order and Zackrie Vinczen of Cedars UU Church.

Attendees at the vigil were encouraged to attend the Aug. 29 town hall in Kingston hosted by U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer, and to press for common sense gun legislation.

The Review’s Brian Kelly was at the vigil and presents this gallery of photos from the event.
