Students at the University of Dayton plan to rally Friday, Oct. 4 in favor of gun reform. Organizers say they coordinated the campus protest to mark the two-month anniversary of Dayton’s deadly August mass shooting that killed nine people and injured another three dozen others.

Student organizer Cierra Stewart says she wants lawmakers to strengthen background checks and tighten firearm-sales regulations.
