Pat Regan became heavily involved in a movement aimed at restricting access to knives and guns as a means of making streets safer. The shooting death of her son was the tipping point for this involvement and it lead to her founding an organization called Mothers Against Violence.
Her work in promoting the anti-violence message has been recognized and acknowledged by the former Prime Minister, Tony Blair. This work has also been recognized by Princess Anne.
Pat Regan may you rest in peace!
