Unveils gun control measures

5 Oct, 2015

Clinton unveils gun control measures she would enact as president, including calls for universal background checks and a crackdown on the sale of guns on the Internet. She invites the mother of a boy who was killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting to join her on stage.

So many of the parents of these precious children who were murdered have taken the unimaginable grief that they have been burying and have tried to be the voices that we need to hear, and I want you to introduce yourself and maybe talk about what you and other parents are trying to do to get the changes that are necessary.

The mother:

Gun violence prevention was no where on my radar before losing my son and I wish it had been and I wish I had done something long before something that I thought could never hit my community hit me.
