Several family members of those killed in the Dec. 14 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School are meeting with senators this week to push for new gun restrictions.
The daughter of slain principal Dawn Hochsprung is also making her case on Twitter. In a series of tweets Tuesday, Erica Lafferty says she is going through the list of senators threatening to fillibuster gun legislation, “calling them one by one. I WILL BE HEARD.”
Lafferty also tweeted photos of her mother as she pressed her case and implored Republican lawmakers to take action.
UPDATE: Gov. Dannel P. Malloy joined in to support Lafferty’s Twitter campaign. In a series of tweets from his official account, @GovMalloyOffice, the governor’s staff (which manages the account) addressed the GOP senators directly and asked them to call Lafferty back. “.@McConnellPress Please call @E_Laffs2 back. The families deserve to be heard, and they deserve a vote,” Malloy’s aides tweeted.
