Senate hearing pits NRA, gun-control supporters

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate Judiciary Committee holds its first hearing on curbing gun violence since the massacre of 20 first-graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., last month.

In prepared testimony for today, the National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre says, "Law-abiding gun owners will not accept blame for the acts of violent or deranged criminals." But Sen. Dianne Feinstein says it's time to "change course" and "make people safe."
