“Blame the victim. Blame the victim’s mother. Blame the victim’s family. Blame the victim’s neighborhood. Find somebody to blame instead of saying you know what, we just have too many guns in this country in the wrong hands, and we have to address it,” Clinton said today at a forum on gun violence in Hartford, Connecticut.

In 2012 Adam Lanza took the semiautomatic Bushmaster rifle his mother had bought him, killed her with it and then drove to Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. He shot 20 children and six teachers dead before taking his own life. Now, a trial date has been set and discovery begins for the lawsuit against Remington Arms for making the weapon used in the shooting.

Connecticut's U.S. Senators marked the upcoming two-year anniversary of the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting this week by giving speeches on the floor of the U.S. Senate.

In April of last year, a gun control bill that was supported by both senators failed to pass. On Wednesday, both Senators called on their colleagues to pass gun control legislation.

In his speech, Sen. Chris Murphy criticized his colleagues for not taking action even though there have been more shootings at schools across the country since the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown.
