    At least one temple member will join push for tougher gun laws in wake of another mass shooting.

    Members of the Oak Creek Sikh community are going to Washington D.C. in the wake of the Navy Yard mass shooting, according to Patch's media partners at WISN 12 News.


    The trip was planned before Monday's shooting, which left 13 people dead, but now takes on a new meaning, according to the report.

    At least one of the temple members, Amardeep Kaleka, will join a push for tougher gun laws.

    The shooting in Washington came a little more than a month after the Sikh temple marked the 1-year anniversary of the Oak Creek shooting, which killed six people.

    Kaleka, whose father died in the attack, is one of several temple members who have become active in the nationwide debate over gun laws following shootings in Oak Creek, Newtown, Ct. and elsewhere.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
