FILE - In this Friday, Dec. 21, 2012 file photo, Josh Nelson, campaign manager, CREDO Mobile, speaks after his group was denied entrance to the Williard InterContinental Hotel where they wanted to deliver a petition to the National Rifle Association calling for the NRA to get out of the way of gun control, as the NRA holds a news conference in Washington. The divide between those who favor gun control and those who don't has existed for decades, separating America into hostile camps of conservative vs. liberal, rural vs. urban. As the nation responds to the massacre of 20 children and six adults in Newtown, Conn., the gulf has rarely felt wider than now. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File)
