NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 24: (L to R) Martin Luther King III, Ronald Odom and Tom Mauser, all of whom had family members killed by gun violence, stand during a press conference about gun laws January 24, 2011 in the rotunda of City Hall in New York City. King's father, the celebrated civil rights leader, was shot by a sniper in Memphis in 1968, Odom's school-aged son, Steven, was shot in a mistaken identity incident in 2007 and Mauser's son Daniel was killed in the Columbine high school shootings in 1999.
