Heartbreakingly, another of Archer's sons was shot dead on December 14. She had just gotten back from a Mother's Day brunch for moms who lost a child to gun violence when the second son was killed.
"He was trying to do good. He had a son. He's over there crying his heart out and he's only six years old," Archer said.
