Family members of two children killed in a shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut are expected to testify at a legislative committee hearing on a bill that would expand gun background checks in New Hampshire.
The parents of two young boys killed during the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut urged New Hampshire lawmakers Tuesday to pass legislation expanding gun background checks to include private sales.
For a third straight day Wednesday, funeral processions rolled through a grieving Connecticut town trying to make sense of the massacre of 20 first-graders and six adults in an elementary school less than two weeks before Christmas.
Mark Barden, who lost his son Daniel in the shooting rampage, said that when he was considering coming to New Hampshire, he knew Daniel would want him to fight for passage of the legislation to close a loophole in New Hampshire's law.
