Newtown families push for gun control, go back to Congress
Michael A. MemoliWASHINGTON — Although the drive for tougher gun controls has faded into the background, families of victims in the Newtown school shooting returned to the Capitol on Wednesday to show they are not giving up.
Advocacy groups on both sides of the debate also are ramping up their campaigns, preparing for the Senate's likely return to the issue after it completes work on the immigration overhaul bill.
Despite intense pressure from the families and gun control advocates, none of the senators who voted against a plan to expand the background check system has indicated he would change his vote.
