FILE - In this Jan. 8, 2012 file photo, U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-N.Y., lights a candle for 5-year-old Destiny Walker, left, who witnessed a murder in her apartment building, during a vigil against gun violence in New York's Harlem neighborhood on the first anniversary of the shooting in Tucson, Ariz. Residents of inner-city neighborhoods wracked by gun violence say they feel neglected and ignored in this presidential election year - especially as a Democratic Party that used to push for gun control remains largely silent on the issue while Republicans launch a full-throated defense of gun ownership. McCarthy's husband Denis was killed by Long Island gunman Colin Ferguson, who shot six and wounded 19 others. McCarthy's son Kevin was severely injured in the 1993 commuter train incident.
