The daughter of the principal who was slain at Sandy Hook ambushes New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte on gun control. (2:20)

FINANCIALLY STABLE AND PREGNANT.

FOLKS, IT SEEMS THESE DAYS EVERY

TIME YOU TURN ON THE NEWS,

THERE'S ANOTHER HEART-BREAKING

STORY ABOUT VICTIMS OF GUN

VIOLENCE TARGETING INNOCENT

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.

IT HAS TO END.

AND I KNOW I'M NOT GOING TO WIN

THEIR NUMBERS ARE GROWING EVERY

DAY.

THAT'S WHY SENATOR JOE MANCHIN

WHO COSPONSORED THE ORIGINAL

BACKGROUND CHECK BILL HAS VOWED

TO REINTRODUCE IT ALL ON THE

FLIMSY EXCUSE THAT OVER 90% OF

AMERICANS WANT IT.

MAKING IT SLIGHTLY MORE POPULAR

THAN NACHO CHEESE AND

REACH-AROUNDS.

NOT TO MENTION NACHO

REACH-AROUNDS.

WHICH INCIDENTALLY IS THE
