Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama tried to shame the nation and Congress into action against gun violence Thursday, saying it is time to pass new laws after the tears and grief of tragedies like the Newtown massacre in December that killed 20 first-graders.

“We need everybody to remember how we felt 100 days ago and make sure that what we said at that time wasn’t just a bunch of platitudes, that we meant it,” Obama said at a White House event on a national day of action by supporters of tougher gun laws.

Victoria Soto was among the teachers who lost their lives in the Sandy Hook massacre. Her younger sister Jillian appeared in a new ad from Mayors Against Illegal Guns. She talks with Soledad on “Starting Point” this morning about the push for stricter gun control laws.
