New gun violence prevention efforts in Congress are being discussed Thursday by 5th District Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty. She, along with Connecticut's two U.S. Senators and other members of the House have met with new members of Congress to discuss reforms.
Members of the Newtown Action Alliance were on Capitol Hill to talk about limiting high-capacity magazines, and feeding devices of more than 10 rounds of ammunition that they say are designed for shooting in mass.
A Danbury pastor was in Washington D.C. Thursday for the 62nd annual National Prayer Breakfast. Reverend Leroy Parker of New Hope Baptist Church in Danbury was a guest of Esty at the event headlined by the President.
Esty says Reverend Parker is passionate about his faith and the community. He said that the day was a time of coming together, not to discuss politics but rather to connect with like-minded community leaders.
