• Dorothy Johnson-Speight visits the grave of her son, Khaaliq Jabbar Johnson, in Philadelphia on Monday, May 9, 2016. Johnson was killed in 2001 - shot seven times over a parking space dispute. "We're losing our loved ones at an alarming rate. I don't think that folks that are fighting and talking about the second amendment understand us. We don't want to take the rights of responsible gun owners away from those people. We just don't want our loved ones to be murdered on the streets of Philadelphia and cities across the country because they have the opportunity to get guns so easily," she says. "People with long criminal history records like the person who killed my son, like people with mental health challenges, they should't have guns." Johnson-Speight is the director of Mothers In Charge, a group that "advocates for families affected by violence and provides counseling and grief support services for families when a loved one has been murdered."
