On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden's gun violence task force is expected to make its recommendations to President Barack Obama. This will come a day after the one month mark after the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in Newtown, CT.
Today, a group of Newtown residents called "Sandy Hook Promise" plan to unveil a national grass-roots initiative to reduce gun violence. The group will be joined by families of victims and survivors of other shootings.
This includes the parents of Christina-Taylor Green who was killed while attending Fmr. Congresswoman Gabby Gifford's "Congress on Your Corner" event. Her mother Roxanna Green started a foundation to honor her daughter's memory and has also done some work with the group “Mayors Against Illegal Guns.”
This morning, Green joins “Starting Point” to discuss the one-month marking of the Newtown shooting and what can be done to reduce gun violence.
To help the first responders of the Sandy Hook school shooting get the comp time they need to deal with their PTSD please consider signing and sharing this petition. The Newtown insurer is refusing to give the 15 officers comp time due to a technicality in the insurance provision so now the officers are going without pay. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
