One year has passed since the Newtown Connecticut massacre that spawned an outcry by some for gun control. Efforts that for the most part, failed.

FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports:

Connecticut already had the nation's toughest gun laws on the books before the massacre that killed 26. And even President Obama later told us:

Obama: "There's no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence in our society."

But stricter Federal gun laws failed to pass, and it was clear that the voices of those protecting the Second Amendment were louder than gun control advocates-- like Nicole Hockley who lost her son Dylan in Sandy Hook Elementary and who promises to continue the fight:

Hockley: "No one wants to wait to be told what to do by Washington or just by policy initiatives. They want to help solve the problem themselves."

She's part of a group of Newtown parents inspiring honest dialogue about any solutions to prevent more tragedies.

Editor's Note: Several states including New York, and Colorado passed their own gun control legislation. But the law in Colorado led to historic recalls of the democratic lawmakers who sponsored the legislation. President Obama observed a moment of silence at the White House Saturday to remember the victims of the Newtown massacre.
