Newtown first responder with PTSD facing termination

Nearly 11 months after a gunman killed 20 children and 6 adults at a Newtown, Connecticut, school, a police officer who responded to the massacre says he is still too traumatized by what he saw to go back to work.

His doctor says he's a victim of PTSD, but his bosses claim he's a liability who should be fired.

Obama's make or break moment on gun control

Four months after the Newtown shooting rampage, Pres. Obama continues to push for new gun laws.

Sandy Hook families to ride AF-1 to DC, lobby Senate

Obama is back in Connecticut speaking at the University of Hartford after meeting with the victims' families. The president is expected to talk about the gun safety laws Connecticut recently passed and highlight the Newtown families' role in lobbying for those new laws.

Democratic Senate leaders are set to meet Tuesday to try to figure out when to bring their gun control bill to the floor.

But is it already too late?

Outfront tonight: Mark Glaze, Director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns; and Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America - a pro-gun lobbying group that's a fraction of the size of the NRA, but perhaps even more powerful in Washington.

The New York Times calls Gun Owners of America "an influential force" and says it was this group's "lobbying blitz" that "helps explain why a bipartisan Senate deal on background checks remains elusive."
