  • Mass. House Speaker names new gun advisory panel - 03/13/2013

    Massachusetts House Speaker Robert DeLeo has named an eight-member panel to advise him on the way to address gun violence.

    The Winthrop Democrat said he formed the group in the wake of the shooting in Newtown, Conn., and other recent mass killings.

    DeLeo said the group will suggest laws that would help avoid similar tragedies.

    The panel will be led by Northeastern University Associate Dean Jack McDevitt and will include law enforcement officials, educators and clinicians.
