US states face federal gun law showdown

Following Newtown massacre, president promises stricter federal rules that may be shot down by states.

    As more victims of the Newtown school shooting are laid to rest, there is been an increase in gun sales in some parts of the United States.

    President Barack Obama is promising stricter gun laws by early next year, but any federal effort could be at odds with laws in each state.
