GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) -- A small group of gun control advocates protested outside Mitt Romney's campaign stop in Golden on Thursday.

About a dozen members of Colorado Ceasefire and Mayors Against Illegal Guns demonstrate outside the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Golden.

Mayors Against Illegal Guns is led by New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston mayor Thomas Menino. The group is pushing for both Romney and President Barack Obama to come up with a plan to address gun violence.

Colorado Ceasefire is led by Tom Mauser, whose son was killed in the 1999 Columbine shootings.
