School Shooting Lobby

In this Feb. 27, 2013, file photo Neil Heslin, the father of Jesse, a six-year-old boy who was slain in the Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14, carries a picture of his son prior to testifying on Capitol Hill in Washington before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013. Families of the school shooting victims are making regular appearances with President Barack Obama and walking the halls of Congress to advocate for stricter gun regulations. They helped push through the nation's most restrictive firearms law in Connecticut this April.
