    On Wednesday, House Speaker Robert DeLeo named Jack McDevitt, an associate dean at Northeastern University, to lead a special commission on gun violence with a possible focus on keeping weapons out of the hands of the mentally ill.

    McDevitt said the tragedy in Newtown, Conn., has galvanized interest in protecting innocent people from gun violence.
