Family members of Newtown victims slammed the Senate, calling it "cowardice" and "grossly unfair" for lawmakers to reject gun control measures last week.

"I'm honestly disgusted that there were so many senators that are doing nothing about the fact that my mom was gunned down in her elementary school," Erica Lafferty, the daughter of slain Sandy Hook Elementary School principal Dawn Hochsprung said Sunday on CBS's Face the Nation. "It's grossly unfair to the family members of Newtown, as well as all other gun violence victims."

Measures to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines and expand background checks to include firearms sales made at gun shows and over the Internet did not get enough support to pass in the Senate last week.

Neil Heslin, who lost his six-year-old son Jesse in the December mass-shooting said he was disappointed by the Senate's vote.

"They're not standing up for what they should be," he said. "I don't think they did justice for all the victims of Newtown."

How come we can't hear from the Newtown families that are against gun control. There is not any media coverage showcasing their opinions.

That's a very logical and thought provoking response. You seem like the kind of person who can hold a educated conversation.

Nobody wants to take guns away. They only want to limit the amount of bullets in a clip And have better criminal back ground checks.(Is that to much for those poor families to ask for?)Yet republicans want to keep telling people they are going after their guns. Hummmm can it be that the NRA has these cowards by the balls? YES!!

And while we're at it, everybody has to register their pressure cookers. I bet there is probably one in every house. Just waiting for some unbalanced nut to reign terror on innocent victims.
OMG YOU ARE EXAMPLE

You are a completely blind idiot. Why don't you put up a sign on your lawn stating your beliefs. Let all the criminals know that you don't believe in guns and have no way to protect yourself or your property. Practice what you preach and just wait for the police department to come and protect you and your family. A lot can happen in the 20 minutes it takes HPD to come and save your sorry butt.

If somebody wants to do you harm, it doesn't take a gun. You going to make sure all the gang bangers play by the same rules? So what political party are you, that would wish ill on somebody? You are very sick and need to do some self examination.
