Clinton in NC urges curbs on gun violence

Hillary Clinton says the spate of gun violence in the United States shows that "protecting all of God’s children is America’s calling."
    
The Democratic presidential nominee spoke at church services in Charlotte, North Carolina, which has been grappling with last month’s shooting death of a black man by a police officer.
    
Clinton said at Little Rock AME Zion Church that the country should try to imagine gun violence "through our children’s eyes."
    
She was joined at the pulpit by 9-year-old Zianna (Zee’-anna) Oliphant. The black child recently gave a tearful address to the city council on race relations, saying she couldn’t "stand how we’re treated."
    
The shooting of Keith Lamont Scott led to two nights of violent protests in downtown Charlotte.
