A week of funerals came to an end Saturday in Newtown, Connecticut.

The final funerals were held for three children who died in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.

The tragic shooting killed 20 young children and six adults.

It’s reignited the national debate over gun control.

The chief of the National Rifle Association proposed having armed guards in every school, but opponents say they don’t think more guns are the answer.
