15 PEOPLE SHOW UP HAHA: Richmond rally supports more checks for gun purchases

BY MARK BOWES Richmond Times-Dispatch

The father of a young boy fatally shot in the Newtown massacre last year stopped in Richmond on Thursday as part of a “No More Names” national bus tour to drum up support for universal background checks for gun purchases.

“It’s something that shouldn’t have happened,” said Neil Heslin, whose 6-year-old son, Jesse Lewis, was one of 20 students and six adults fatally shot at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.“It’s something that can’t happen again. It’s something that’s got to be changed, and we can help prevent that.”
