Newton parents to lobby lawmakers

WASHINGTON -  

Senate Democrats continue to mull strategy for their efforts at gun legislation, especially expanded background checks.
 
   They're holding a lunchtime meeting today to assess whether West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin has reached an acceptable compromise -- or has a realistic chance of getting one -- with Pennsylvania Republican Pat Toomey.
 
   Some Newtown, Conn., families are spending time today lobbying lawmakers.
 
   Democrats will be deciding in the next couple of days whether they should try to get Republican support or follow the shakier path of pursuing it on their own.
