DANBURY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – In the wake of the Newtown massacre, gun protesters on Tuesday took their message to a Walmart not far from Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Though staffers at the Danbury Walmart said guns are not sold there, protesters took aim at the major national gun seller.
According to organizers, nearly 300,000 signatures are on a petition presented in a large box to store manager John Ruggieri.
“You have to join us in this effort. You have to be a willing partner and participant to help stop the gun violence,” said Laurie Haas, whose daughter Emily survived the Virginia Tech shooting.
