AURORA-- Advocates for gun control gathered at noon in a sun-blanched local park to mark the one-year anniversary of the midnight movie-theater shooting here that killed 12, injured 70 and gripped a nation grown accustomed to a news cycle that now features indiscriminate gun massacres at regular intervals.
Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which lists as its only Colorado member former Denver mayor and current Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, is calling on Congress to strengthen and enforce background checks for purchasing a weapon. The group also is asking President Barack Obama to address gun control during his State of the Union speech Tuesday night.
