New York City filmmaker Kim Snyder’s documentary, “Newtown,” tells the story of the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history. On December 14, 2012, 20 first graders and six educators were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newtown.
This fall, students will return to Sandy Hook Elementary School for the first time since the 2012 shooting that killed 20 students and 6 educators. The public just got their first look at the new school building, on the same site as the old one.
On Wednesday night, at the Democratic National Convention, U. S. Senator Chris Murphy, D-Conn., joined family members of victims of gun violence, including the Sandy Hook School shooting, to advocate for stronger federal gun control laws.
