About a dozen people were at the Farrell Municipal Building Wednesday afternoon talking about gun violence and problems affecting the community as part of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns movement. The group is urging legislators to pass strict gun laws in the wake  of the Newtown, Conn., school massacre in December.

“Our hopes are that we make it completely clear what this is about is to prevent violence, to curb violence, within our streets,” said Judy Hines, a child activist and community organizer.

The group asked questions about gun violence to Southwest Regional Police Chief Riley Smoot.
