Newtown United was born in the agony and confusion that followed the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
The group of residents, including parents of children who survived, held its first meeting two days after the shooting as news teams from around the globe scrambled for reaction to the killings.
Group leaders are working to ensure that Newtown United grows and gains power long after the news trucks leave. Before the week was over, leaders had formed an executive team and started the process of becoming a nonprofit organization. Some members had gone to Washington to speak against gun violence
The group, organizers said, will use the traditional media, social media, outreach to churches, schools, government agencies and all other avenues to make "Newtown" a rallying cry against gun violence.
"We are just a few concerned citizens with day jobs trying to ensure that what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary marks the high-water mark for gun violence in this nation," Newtown United spokesman Rob Cox wrote in an email. "Ultimately we hope to provide a platform for the voices of the families most affected by this horrific event."

More hate speech from the worst kind of liberals.
Typical “Progressive” action plan: Punish the innocent. Excuse the guilty.
Useful idiots recruited by the communists to trample their own Bill of Rights. We don’t deserve the freedom that we’ve had, until now, in this country.
FB page is quite professional and ‘connected’
Who is funding the 'organization"? What will they gain from it?
There are always vultures that show up after any disaster - and look to profit from it...
We can always count on Democrats to use any crisis (even their own children’s blood) to strip freedom from Americans and do the wrong thing.
These people don’t question why the children and teachers of Newtown were left as sitting ducks for a mad man to slaughter? The man had his guns illegally. Bad guys don’t care about laws.
Mexico is a gun free Nation. That is why 24,000 were slaughtered last year.
Democrats learn nothing and forget nothing.
I’m sorry for your loss, but you will never persuade me to give up my guns to protect my children to make you feel better.
You failed as parents to protect your children and relied on an uncaring, incompetent government to stop a slaughter. That’s a cross you will bear forever.
Edited for truthfulness.

Rob Cox is basically part of the international anti-American elite while claiming to be another Newtown resident with a day job.
When you consider what freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution that have been polluted one has to wonder that America will never recover.
Internationalists (see my previous post)
The motive for the massacre is right in front of our face.
So will these useful idiots feel guilty when we have gun confiscation and the second civil war starts?
Basically he's a leftist's leftist.
It's insanity...and I don't believe in that "defense"...because it takes too much thought to do what he did.
Will they also express concern for the 2+ million people who used a firearm this year to thwart an attack that could have ended up in the death of the victim?
