Michigan man bicycling against gun violence

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- Scott Hite is on a mission to stop gun violence before it happens, and he's set up a national hotline to help.

Scott Hite has been riding his bike along the Missouri River for the last 40-some days to promote the hotline and his website.

The toll-free hotline was created back in May. Those who call receive immediate and confidential support.

Hite said he is hoping to raise funds and awareness on his bike tour.

"They have, someone who is planning something like this has their lucid moments where they say 'hey, I should call a number,' but I think a lot of it is they don't feel safe calling it," Hite said.
