Moment of Silence for victims of gun violence today

Posted: Updated:
Newtown, CT -

There is a moment of silence and the reading of thousands of names of gun violence victims Friday morning in Connecticut. It has been six months since the Sandy Hook school shootings.

Family members, elected officials and other leaders are gathering in Newtown for a day of remembrance. But it's also a call of action for the passage of legislation to expand background checks for gun purchases.

The readings are expected to take 12 hours.
