Newton Victim's Father Wants Better Gun Enforcement

The father of a 6-year old victim who died in the elementary school shooting in Newton, CT last month said the state's existing gun laws need stricter enforcement and the nation needs to return to civility.

Mark Mattioli appeared before a legislative subcommittee reviewing gun laws in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting that left 27 people dead, 20 of them young children.

Mattioli said he believes in "simple, few gun laws" and that there are "more than enough on the books." However it is his opinion that existing laws are not being enforced properly.

The grieving father received a standing ovation from those in attendance.

Hundreds have showed up to testify before the subcommittee. The line stretched outside as the public waited to go through metal detectors to gain access to the building.
