Wisconsin Sikh members who lost loved ones in the Oak Creek temple massacre are demanding change following the shootings in Connecticut.
Some joined New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg Monday to ask the president and congress to work together to tighten gun laws through the website "Demand A Plan".
"Parents are going to have to take a bigger role to their family life. We as a society, as a community have to take a bigger role in just reaching out to the kids," Pardeep Kaleka said, who's father was killed in the temple shootings back in August.
Three major moves would require every gun buyer to pass a background check, ban assault weapons, and make gun trafficking a felony.
"If this moment passes into memory without action from Washington, it will be a stain upon our nation's commitment to protecting the innocent including our children," Mayor Bloomberg said.
As a gun owner himself, Pardeep says he doesn't want to take all guns away. He just wants people to be safer with them.
"I need to know what are leaders going to do to stop the gun violence," Pardeep said in a video on the website. "I demand a plan."
