The grieving mother of a 6-year-old killed in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School joined Illinois Democrats on Sunday in calling for a statewide ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines.
Nicole Hockley choked up when discussing the December massacre in Newtown, Conn., that claimed her son Dylan.
"In Newtown, we learned the brutal truth about the devastation that high-capacity magazines can cause," said Hockley inside the Thompson Center in downtown Chicago.
Hockley, who was joined by fellow Newtown parents Mark Barden and Francine Wheeler, said the proposed law Senate Bill 1002 could save innocent lives

No greiving mothers of gangbangers in chitown to write about there greggie? I hear day be bussin’ a cap in each others Azz on a regular basis........YO
Limiting the magazine capacity will do nothing but ensure that you run out of ammo before the bad guys.
Those people have forfeited any sympathy for their loss. They are reaching the level of contempt I reserve for Tom Mauser.
And all along I thought it was some guy named Lanza who caused the devastation.
Meanwhile, the families of those murdered on SEP 11 2012 in Benghazi continue to be ignored.
I was sick of them months ago. They have turned themselves into prostitutes of the left. They get paid for these crying jags on TV. I despise them.
Easier to pass another stupid and ineffective law and smugly believe they've done something than it is to actually do something about the root causes of the problem.
She has yet to earn the lesson of Newtown.
It wasn’t the gun or the high capacity magazine, It was a crazed little creep nutcase that should have been locked away somewhere instead of medicated to the hilt.
When are people going to start “addressing”the REAL Problem?It isn’t”guns” or”high-capacity magazines”,it’s”NUTCASES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry...one being a crime victim gives her no right nor particular insight to negate a constitutional right. I’m not giving up my right to defend my family and property because of her horrible loss!!!
Who has the right to tell me how many bullets I need to defend myself?
Senate Bill 1002 could save innocent lives.
So could an armed citizenry.
I hate to break it to these liberal, “grieving” parents but even the media realizes this fight is over for now and has moved on.
NEVER, never, never try to actualy defend our children.
Let’s us go after you guys instead.
Just make sure you can’t defend yours, either.
No, they’ve learned the language of victimology where the first lesson is the blame always falls on an inanimate object so it can be demonized.
Show these families no respect for they deserve no respect.
The angle on this is the Chicago gang is trying to weaken the resolve of the downstate dems who are 1) blocking any ban legislation, and 2) keeping conceal carry close to succeeding. If you live in IL in an area where you have a dem senator or rep who is wobbly on guns, now is the time to let your voice be heard.
