HARTFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) – Vice President Joe Biden joined Conn. Gov. Dannel Malloy, other lawmakers and the parents of a young girl killed in the Sandy Hook massacre at a conference on gun violence Thursday.
The conference was held a few miles from the scene of last year’s Newtown school shootings.
Biden is trying to rally support for the administration’s proposals to curb gun violence, saying there will be a moral price to pay for inaction.
Biden said America has changed its views of gun control since the Dec. 14 massacre of 26 people inside Sandy Hook Elementary School.
