Democratic presidential candidate John Hickenlooper is meeting with families in Newtown, Connecticut, this weekend to highlight his gun control proposal.
The former Colorado governor plans to meet Saturday at a library in Newtown with first responders and families affected by the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Under a proposal he announced earlier this week, gun owners would have to be licensed and pass a safety test to own firearms. The licensing proposal would only affect people born after 2001.
Another Democratic presidential contender, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, has released a similar gun control proposal.
