The mother of Dylan Hockley, the six-year-old British boy who died during the Newtown massacre, told ITV News it is difficult for her to understand the passion many Americans have for their weapons.
Speaking about the use of high-capacity ammunition clips, Nicole Hockley said, "I don't see why any civilian would need that in their home", but added she is not going to say "no you can't".
"My personal opinion is, if people are that interested in playing soldier then they should go join the military or law enforcement and do it properly", she continued.
There were 26 victims in Newtown - as the US tries to get to grips with gun legislation since, 900 Americans died in gun-related violence.
For the first time since the Sandy Hook massacre Ian and Nicole Hockley have spoken of their gorgeous little boy.
