Connecticut doctor speaks out on gun control

We've heard opinions on gun control from lawmakers, activists and even celebrities but what about people who see the result of this violence every day.

A doctor from Newtown Connecticut is speaking out on gun control.

He spoke to a Sandy Hook bi-partisan task force about stricter gun control laws and he had some stunning facts.

"In the U.S. since 1996 we had over 20 mass murders; Great Britain has had one. Okay, in 2010 the United States had about 32,000 gun deaths; Great Britain - 155," said William Begg, Newtown Emergency Doctor.

Other hearings are also being held examining how this mass shooting could have been avoided.
