Tamera Mowry-Housley Doesn’t Want Her Niece’s Death To Be Political: I Want This To Be A Catalyst For Change [VIDEO]

Tamera Mowry-Housley Wants Gun Control, But Doesn’t Want To Involve Politics, Wants Humans To Have Basic Decency

Tamera Mowry-Housley, her husband Adam, and his brother, Arik, who was the father to Alaina Housley, the youngest victim of the Thousand Oaks bar shooting, are speaking out after finding Alaina’s life was taken last Wednesday (November 7th) evening in Southern California. As their family attempts to search for questions that may never be answered, they’re discussing how they wish America should be moving forward.

When asked how Mowry-Housley believes things should change with gun control she says,

I would love for this situation to be a catalyst for change. But I don’t automatically want to make it political, cause when you do that, you shut people out. I think if we can make it about mankind, we start with ourselves. You start with decency, you start with imagining, ‘Wait a minute, what if that was my child, or my niece, or my cousin?’ It will get you in a place of just having some sort of human decency. When you focus on that, then you naturally want to start change.


Alaina was beautiful. And she was my friend. Yes, there needs to be a change, but all the noise … nothing’s been done.

Alaina’s body returned to her home in Napa Valley, CA, where the Housley family was greeted with 100’s of local mourners as they lined up for miles to welcome Alaina home f0r the last time.
