Neil Heslin, the father of a six-year old boy who was among the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting on December 14, testified yesterday before the Gun Violence Prevention Working Group at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.

With over 1,000 people in attendance, Heslin held a framed photo of himself and his late child and pleaded with lawmakers to improve mental health options and to ban assault weapons.

Students from Sandy Hook Elementary School, many of whom were present on the day of last month's horrific Newtown shooting, gathered this morning on Good Morning America.

With assistance from singer/songwriter Ingrid Michaelson, the 20 children (ages 6-9) sang a cover of "Over the Rainbow," with the track now available on iTunes and all proceeds benefiting the Newtown Youth Academy, a local nonprofit, and the United Way of Western Connecticut.
