      The folks in DC really need to talk to the folks back home. That's who they listen to.

        Tnx for answering. I did not forget the CT witnesses. explained below*

        I guess I was unclear:  I meant the families of Victims of mass shootings (however defined) from states where the Congressional delegations is anti-gun control in HR or wavering in Sen.

        I was inspired by quoted from legislators in Hartford paper saying their vote was moved by pix  received of children shot.

        My idea to be absolutely clear: For these families trip to DC would be expensive; would require on the ground logistical  support and accompaniers, given likely encounters with the supporters of the other side. I think I know a local foundation that might take on the raising of money if asked.

        *I knew the CT families have been present and sob at every picture I see of their presence --the courage is beyond anything I can imagine.
