“We need change when it comes to gun violence,” Tamera said during an interview on “The Real.” “And I don’t care if I have to knock on the doors of the White House to do it, to advocate change.”

Alaina Housley had been at the Borderline Bar & Grill on the day of the Thousand Oaks shooting. Unfortunately, she was one of the 12 people killed. A gunman opened fire at a country-themed college night.

Mowry-Housley took a brief hiatus to grieve the loss of her niece. On her return to the show, she took a moment to talk about her close relationship to the 18-year-old.

"I met Alaina when she was 5, and the Housleys – we were a group of 10, meaning whenever we were together, we were together," she said. "I'm very blessed to have an amazing mother-in-law, father-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law. So, they are my family, along with my immediate family." said Mowry-Housley about her relationship with the teen.

"We need change when it comes to gun violence, and I don't care if I have to knock on the doors of the White House to do it, to advocate change. I feel that if we talk to our representatives, and talk from that place, maybe, just maybe, we'll be able to move forward." said Mowry-Housley

After the show, Mowry-Housley took to Instagram to continue her tribute. She also revealed that she was "nervous" to talk about gun reform on her show but that she believes Alaina helped her through it.

The statistics show that Mowry-Housley could be onto something about gun laws. There have been 307 mass shooting in 2018 alone in the United States.

The Gun Violence Archive defines a mass shooting as a single incident in which four or more people, not including the shooter, are "shot and/or killed" at "the same general time and location."

“Our family’s been through a lot. But the interesting thing about grief is that you’ve got to find the balance of moving forward and grieving at the same time.” ~ Tamera Mowry-Housley,
