When he announced his executive actions on guns Tuesday morning, President Obama was surrounded by a number of people who were either family members of victims of gun violence or victims themselves.

We’ve identified them below.


In addition to the president, Vice President Biden and former Arizona representative Gabrielle Giffords (who attended with her husband, Mark Kelly), the following people were there:

Mark Barden. Barden’s son Daniel was shot to death in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in December 2012.

Jimmy Greene. Greene’s daughter, Ana Grace, was also killed at Sandy Hook.

Daniel Hernandez. When Gabby Giffords and 18 other people were shot in a Tucson parking lot in 2011, Hernandez provided first aid to the congresswoman at the scene, and is given credit for saving her life.

Mandeep Kaur. Kaur was at the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting in 2012, where six people were killed.
