President Obama offered a lift Monday to the families of those slain in the Newtown massacre last year.

After the president delivered a passionate and urgent plea in Hartford, Conn., for lawmakers to overhaul the nation's gun laws, 11 Newtown families rode with him aboard Air Force One to Washington, where they are lobbying Congress to act.

As they disembarked at Andrews Air Force Base, the president wrapped his arm around Jillian Soto, whose 27-year-old sister, Vicki Soto, was a teacher killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
