img Democrats and gun control advocates renewed their long-dormant push for limits on gun sales, building pressure on President Barack Obama to take a forceful stand on the subject.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat and senior member of the Judiciary Committee, said on ABC’s “This Week” she’ll intensify her push to renew an expired assault-weapons ban, which so far has failed to win political support in Congress. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin promised hearings.

Twenty children and six adults were shot to death on Dec. 14 by a man with an assault rifle at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. The suspect, Adam Lanza, 20, killed himself at the school with one of the two handguns he also was carrying. He shot his mother, Nancy, earlier at their nearby home, Connecticut state police said.
