A few dozen people from the homegrown advocacy group Newtown Action Alliance made the six-hour bus trip from Newtown, Conn. to Washington, D.C.  Wednesday morning to demand Congress resurrect the gun control legislation that failed in April.

The group will join many others descending on Capitol Hill this week ahead of the six-month anniversary of the Sandy Hook massacre that killed 20 children.
