Gun reformers swarm the Hill to mark Newtown anniversary

The advocates concede that such legislation would likely fail in the current Congress.
Check it out:

Gun control advocates swarmed Capitol Hill this week just ahead of the one-year anniversary of the shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The activists, representing Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, are pressuring lawmakers from both parties to revisit legislation requiring universal background checks prior to all gun purchases.

The advocates concede that such legislation would likely fail in the current Congress – as it did in the Senate last spring. But they want another high-profile vote on the measure next year as a way to remind the public where lawmakers stand ahead of the 2014 elections.
