This Saturday marks the one year anniversary of the fatal shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut. That day, 20 children were killed,  the youngest, just 6 years old.

Gun violence is a terrifying threat, especially to kids. It's a theme that a young artist from the San Fernando Valley has addressed in his work, which he calls 3D Gun Art. 11-year-old Charles Gitnick joins us in the studio.
