Protesters Outside White House Call for Stricter Gun Control

December 14, 2012

On the day that a reported 20 children and 6 faculty members were killed in the second worst school shooting in U.S. history, activists gathered outside the White House for a vigil and to call for stricter gun-control legislation. Some were there in response to a comment made by White House press secretary Jay Carney about the debate about gun control in which he said, "...I do not think today is that day."
