Some Sandy Hook families form group calling for action

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

One month ago to the day since an unspeakable tragedy struck Newtown, Connecticut, when a 20-year-old man shot and killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Now grieving parents and residents are coming together to issue a challenge: to make this country a safer place for all our children.

This community is reaching for the higher ground of support and solutions. They're calling it the Sandy Hook Promise.

Holding the pictures of their children who were killed, these brave parents said the best way to honor the innocent lives taken was to make sure it doesn't happen again because the pain never goes away.

The leaders of sandy hook promise say there are gun owners among them, and that they're looking for common sense ways to prevent violence.

But first it starts with a national conversation, they say.

Residents will be debating the future of the Sandy Hook school at a public meeting this Friday. Some want it torn down, while others want it modified and reopened.

Organizers say there is no one solution and that everyone can do something to help.
