ESSENCE took to twitter Monday night for a conversation with “Washington Watch” host Roland S. Martin and ESSENCE Acting Managing Editor Vanessa K. Bush about the #ESSENCEGunsDown initiative to help get illegal firearms off the streets. Followers participated in the conversation which gave insight on how the #GunsDown movement got its start, ways we can make our communities a safer place, and what happens next following the Senate’s recent vote against gun control reform.
