Flint Mayor Dayne Walling visited Washington D.C. Thursday as a concerned member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

Walling, who was joined by survivors of gun violence and the families of its victims, members of Congress, law enforcement, gun owners and faith leaders, were to have held a rally as part of the "No More Names: National Drive to Reduce Violence Gun Violence" bus tour.

Walling said "we have lost too many precious lives to gun violence in Flint and across the country. I will continue to push for real change with gun safety laws including universal background checks. This would cut the supply of illegal guns and make our communities safer."

Over the last 100 days, the bus tour has traveled the nation at events in 25 states to urge elected officials to reconsider bipartisan gun background check legislation.
