Push for common-sense gun laws continues

(Continued)

The one-year anniversary of the Newtown massacre is Saturday, Dec. 14. There are events, vigils and services planned all across the country. I would hope that everyone, regardless of where they stand on gun legislation, take the time to reflect, not only about the pain the families of the victims of gun violence must live with every day, but about how the continuing threat of gun violence affects their life, and the lives of their children and grandchildren. No community is immune to this threat.
