FILE - This Dec. 16, 2012 file photo shows President Barack Obama pausing during a speech at an interfaith vigil for the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, at Newtown High School in Newtown, Conn. A review of 2012 media reports by The Associated Press found at least 61 gun-related deaths of American children 12 or younger, not including the children slain at Sandy Hook school. They died in small batches, one or two at a time, in cities, suburbs, small towns, on Indian reservations and, frequently, at home or with parents nearby. (AP Photo/ Evan Vucci, File)
