Mom of Marckel Ross To Speak on Gun Control
Elizabeth Ross, mother of a Pr. George's student shot and killed last September, will speak after a film tonight that features a survivor's account of Virginia Tech mass shootings.
Prince George's County residents will have the opportunity to chime in and learn more about the national gun control debate Monday night, when the New Deal Cafe in Greenbelt hosts a Reel and Meal event featuring "Living for 32."

The film was selected in the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
