Sandy Hook Families Urge Passage of Del. Gun Bills

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP)- Parents of children killed in the December mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut are urging Delaware lawmakers to pass new gun control measures.

Parents of three children killed at Sandy Hook planned to meet with Gov. Jack Markell on Tuesday in Dover.

Sandy Hook Promise, a nonprofit organization created by Newtown, Conn., residents after the shootings, also is coordinating meetings with legislators.

Among the measures supported by the Connecticut contingent is a bill before the state House that prohibits the manufacture, sale or unlawful possession of clips holding more than 10 bullets. They also are urging House passage of a bill that requires gun owners to report the loss or theft of a gun to police. That bill cleared the Senate by a single vote last week.
