The Hidden Life of Guns - A Washington Post Investigation

The recent, horrific events at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut have both shocked and angered the nation, prompting new urgency on gun safety and mental health awareness.

I have long been an advocate for gun safety legislation and these tragic events that left 27 people dead, including 20 children, have made me even more determined to see that action is taken here in Pennsylvania, as well as in Congress. Incidents such as this cannot continue to happen, we must take a stand.

A few months ago, I brought you all an excellent investigative series on gun violence done by the Washington Post. I think it is fitting that we revisit this series.
