Some couple activism with grief in Conn.

Group discusses gun control and mental health

NEWTOWN, Conn. — People drawn to Newtown to share in its mourning brought cards and handmade paper snowflakes to town Monday while residents prepared to observe Christmas less than two weeks after a gunman killed 20 children and six educators at an elementary school.

On Christmas Eve, residents planned to light luminaries outside their homes in memory of the victims. Tiny empty Christmas stockings with the victims’ names on them hung from trees in the neighborhood where the children were shot.
