CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- The parents of two young boys killed during a shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut are urging New Hampshire lawmakers to pass legislation expanding gun background checks.
Nicole Hockley, whose 6-year-old son Dylan died in the December 2012 shooting, said Tuesday at a news conference that the horrible pain Sandy Hook families are experiencing from gun violence could easily happen in New Hampshire. She urged New Hampshire lawmakers and citizens not to wait before doing something that could prevent a similar tragedy.
Mark Barden, who lost his son Daniel that day, said he asks himself all the time what Daniel would do. He said when he was considering coming to New Hampshire, he knew Daniel would want him to go, to fight for passage of the legislation.
