Nardyne Jeffries

Armed with photo of slain daughter, mom pushes for change

In this photo taken March 29, 2016, Nardyne Jefferies holds a photo of her late daughter Brishell in Arlington, Va. Brishell Jones was 16 when she and several other teenagers were standing on a street corner in Washington, D.C., after attending a funeral for a friend who was killed over a missing bracelet. (AP Photo/Molly Riley)WASHINGTON (AP) — The photo is jarring: a teenage girl lying on a slab, her chest sliced open exposing bone and blood. There’s a gaping wound in the left side of her head. It’s hard to look at, but Nardyne Jefferies has made it her mission since her daughter was killed in a drive-by shooting to make sure Americans — especially politicians — are forced to see exactly what gun violence does.
