(Lancaster) -- The mayor and police chief of Lancaster are joining in calls for Congress to stop gun violence.
Mayor Rick Gray and city police Chief Keith Sadler held a news conference at City Hall today, the one-month anniversary of the Connecticut school shooting in which 20 children and six adults were murdered.
They urged passage of federal laws requiring background checks for anyone who buys a gun, banning military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and making gun trafficking a federal crime.
They also released a TV ad sponsored by Mayors Against Illegal Guns featuring relatives of gun-violence victims demanding action in Washington. Organizers say it will be aired in the Lancaster market.
