Article Photos: Urban advocates say new gun control talk overdue 1/4

FILE - In this Jan. 23, 2009 file photo, pallbearers carry the casket of 4-year-old Roberto Lopez Jr., outside Our Lady of Angels Church in Los Angeles. The boy was shot in the chest a week earlier as he walked with his 5-year-old sister in a gang-plagued Echo Park neighborhood. In the wake of the Dec. 14, 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in the small town of Newtown, Conn., there is now much political discussion about gun control. For urban advocates, this new emphasis on gun control is long overdue. (AP Photo/Mark Boster, Pool, File)
