Survivor of Aurora theater massacre reflects on the one year anniversary of the shooting

Mayors Against Illegal Guns released a new television ad featuring Stephen Barton, a survivor of the Aurora, CO shooting that took place one year ago. In the ad, Barton recalls his chilling experience in the theater that night and asks for action from Washington lawmakers to keep guns away from criminals and the mentally ill.

Though more than 90 percent of Americans support expanding background checks to all gun sales, a minority of US Senators blocked a bipartisan background checks bill in April proposed by NRA “A”-rated Republican Senator Pat Toomey and Democratic Senator Joe Manchin that would have closed the loopholes making it easy for dangerous people to get guns.
