Coalition pushes for background checks on gun sales

Posted: Updated:
COBB COUNTY, Ga. -

Gun owners and gun control advocates joined forces at the local office of Sen. Saxby Chambliss on Friday.

With school back in session, proponents delivered backpacks filled with thousands of postcards calling on the senator to support background checks on all gun sales.

Organizers dropped off seven backpacks at the senator's office to represent the seven young people who are murdered with guns every day in America.

The White House has attempted to push through new measures for comprehensive background checks on guns sales, but Congress has yet to take action.
