President Barack Obama spoke at the Chase Family Arena at the University of Hartford to push his efforts for new legislation to address gun violence. This is Obama's second visit to Connecticut since the Newtown shootings, and first visit since Gov. Dannel Malloy and the Conn. legislature passed strong new gun legislation. Neil Heslin, father of Jesse Heslin, who died in the Sandy Hook School shooting, applauds during the speech.
